Victoria MacLennan. 01 September 2023, 10:23 am

Kia ora and welcome to this weeks AI wrap the first for September. I tried a few other tools to write this and reverted back to ChatGPT as co-author. It feels like (I might be wrong) there has been a great deal of noise this last week on the AI front, more apps announced, lots of vendor promotion masked as media articles but not as much of substance - so here is a collection I’ve read that are worth your time.
