    James has delivered a thought provoking, interesting, and certainly entertaining presentation about what AI tools are available through My Heritage and Microsoft Co-Pilot. He is one of the few presenters who has explained the various components that comprise the emerging mystery that is called “AI” today. His hints about testing your inquiry and the results returned against your past confirmed research is so important, because it trains you how to frame the most accurate and focussed inquiry to obtain the most reliable and arguably accurate information back from the chatbot. A very practical and helpful presentation.

    James Tanner gave an easily understood description on the use of AI for genealogy research, looking specifically at the amazing things that can be done with AI on the MyHeritage site. I’m hoping James will give a second, more in depth webinar on this topic.

    I have always been a little leery of AI, but after completing my second webinar by James Tanner I look forward to expanding my genealogical research to include AI.

    I appreciated Mr. Tanner’s insights on the impact of AI services on genealogy research. The handout was a great summary of the creation of the creation of the concept of AI, the current situation, and the future of the technology on genealogy as well as the world at large. The evolution of AI will truly change our lives.
