From daTeechur's Desk: The AI Edition

Plus...an exciting new frontier in education!

Happy Friday, friends!

I hope this finds you well. We've got some thrilling news to share. First, a big thank-you hug to everyone who supported our bond offering a few weeks ago. Because of you, we met our goal! It's been a wonderful journey, and I want to keep you in the loop.

Still working in the district, I've been diving headfirst into the vast ocean of Artificial Intelligence (AI). It's like finding a new world filled with endless possibilities! Today's edition will give you a taste of what's been cooking. Ready? Let's go!

AI in a Flash: Episode 1 (of 1 😂)

You know those brilliant ideas that come when your mind is at rest? I call those "shower gems." Episode 1 of "AI in a Flash" is a glimpse into one of those moments, where I explore the vast world of artificial intelligence through GPT-4. Initially meant to be followed by Episode 2, I got a little derailed, and the second installment is still in the works. However, this video offers valuable insights into AI that I can't wait for you to see!

It's a candid introduction to GPT-4, highlighting its versatility and evolution, along with useful apps and extensions. A quick note: since the recording of this video, web browsing within Chat GPT has changed and is no longer available. Things in the tech world move fast!
