Banning books is bad. Using inaccurate tools like ChatGPT to justify banning books is bad and shows a spectacular misunderstanding of how these tools work.

There are a lot of companies working on AI-based products and services right now. In our AI workshops for public librarians, we primarily use tools from OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT. But we also stay up-to-date on the other players, including Google.
As of today, we still view OpenAI's GPT-4 as the most useful general AI model, whether proprietary or open source. Lots of AI-based products and services, including our own PLAID training app, are built around OpenAI's models. But Google has recently announced a push to integrate their "Duet AI" into their Google Workspace offerings. These are presumably variations of the beta AI tools that have been in Workspace for a while, and they're intended to compete with Microsoft's Copilot offerings in Office.
In a live demo this week, we tried it out!

In our Library AI workshops, we mention the potential of AI-based tools like ChatGPT to assist with library services like Readers Advisory ("RA"). However, until recently, we only had anecdotal examples of how ChatGPT performed at this task.
So, we've spent some time lately figuring out how to methodically explore ChatGPT's capability as an RA tool. It's slow going -- we've just dipped our toe in the water, so to speak -- but we see some great potential!

Hey, everyone! So let's chat about ChatGPT. It's a handy little tool, right? But it does have a couple of quirks that can be annoying. First off, you may have heard of the "training cutoff". In simple terms, it means ChatGPT knows a bunch of stuff...up until the autumn of 2021. After that? It's kinda like it slept through the past year and a half and missed everything post-2021. Another big bummer: it can't browse the web either, so it's stuck with its 2021 knowledge.
