🤖 AI book almost done
The first draft of the AI book is almost complete. Working title: Centaur Writing - How to Use AI to Write Better.
I have used Bing quite a lot during the writing process, not just ChatGPT. Bing is also GPT-4, but has the advantage of being connected to the internet, so you can give it a link to read, for example.

Anyway, with it, I created a CEO comment, a press release, a blog post, several tweets, and a Q&A. All based on Ericsson's latest annual report.
These AI tools really speed things up!
