      I have used ChatGPT and I often use it now to help me to make my writing sound better. I sometimes use it to help explain complicated technology, but I have to be careful because ChatGPT, like other LLMs (Large Language Models) is not always correct. AI can suffer from ‘hallucinations’, which is basically where they make something up when they do know the answer or if they don’t understand the question. Before you use an answer from ChatGPT you should check it is correct from another place.

      Yes of course. Also Google’s Gemini. The way I see it is, they are tools to make your life easier. Like a calculator. At the end of the day, you need to know how to tweak, apply and use the answers it gives. I use it a lot to get first versions of code and to summarise lengthy reports to find the topics I need.
