In 2023, there was a surge in hype surrounding artificial intelligence, with experts worldwide asserting that AI would inevitably impact or influence every aspect of our lives.

Arguably, the hype and myths surrounding AI have led to divisions in attitudes towards this technology, ranging from the futurists and doomsdayers to the indifferent, the hopeful, and the neo-Luddite. Regardless of the category you may identify with, AI is here to stay and will continue to permeate our lives, whether overtly or subtly.

Given the diverse community definitions of AI and the abundance of hype, determining whether AI is a help or a hindrance can be challenging. The crucial question is: How do you want to deal with AI?

In this presentation, Lawson aims to provide insight into the achievements of the world in 2023 concerning AI - covering the good, the bad, and the ugly. He will explore how AI, in various shapes and forms, can be integrated into everyday work life and where a human touch is indispensable.


1. What are the tangible developments in AI? Is it more than DITA and CMS assistance?

2. Insight into results: What worked and didn’t work for content writers.

3. Solutions: Where and how do we blend AI and human intelligence?
