    What a great talk Steve! Thank you so much. As one who likes to experiment with ChatGPT and other AI tools for images and family history stories, you have given so much depth to this subject, and learning about the history of it all adds so much to the understanding of what I am doing.

    Great talk Steve! You did an excellent job of presenting this topic which is totally new to me. Thanks very much. Hope we can find a way to use it in our Little DNA Project some day.

    I have been using the ‘free’ version 3.5 routinely. after Little’s great talk, I will follow his advice of subscribing to GPT 4.0 for a trial. My major brick wall involves a very rare ‘made up’ surname – BETTERSPINNER – that disappeared when immigrants adopted the more common “SPINNER” name. So far there are only four instances of it! I am very excited to try these tools. [Subscriber here for hundreds of years.]

    I just got a new toolbox and will mark it “AI 2024”. I am looking forward to how AI will help me. I have sight problems. I think that AI will help me. Thank you
