Meet ChatGPT, your new AI sidekick brought to you by OpenAI. Now, if you’re envisioning a Hollywood-style robot ready to take over the world, simmer down. ChatGPT won’t be making your morning coffee anytime soon, but it will analyze heaps of data faster than you can blink, craft reports that would make Shakespeare proud, draft communications that could soften a hardened politician, and offer insights that might just make you the next economic development guru.
