PD Playlist: Artificial Intelligence Content Generators

To help anyone interested in learning about AI content generators, TCDC has compiled another “PD Playlist.” We’ve arranged the resources from “sound bite” to “radio play” and “full LP.” Some options will take just a few minutes of your time while others will require a longer commitment.  Because of the volume of information on AI and ChatGPT produced since November 30th, when ChatGPT was released in a “free research preview,” we have cheated a bit this time and offered two respected resource lists to help you find topics relevant to your needs and interests. 

Visit the TCDC site, to view the entire catalogue of PD Playlists.
