          I must say, you’ve done an excellent job with the course. It’s quite a challenge to explain the technology to non-tech individuals in a comprehensive and approachable way, but you’ve managed to do it successfully. I personally didn’t have to invest much time since I already had some prior knowledge of chat GPT through self-learning, which helped me absorb the information from the course more effectively…

          [Read more]

          The idea of providing examples for the prompts as well is highly appreciated. It makes understanding the concept of chat GPT much easier for everyone. It’s important for more people to realize that chat GPT is a tool that requires learning how to use it, and your examples make that process much more accessible.

          I also want to stress how much I value the repeated emphasis on confidentiality when using chat GPT. You’ve highlighted the risks and challenges associated with this technology, and I fully agree that it’s crucial for everyone to understand this in today’s hyper-hype of Ai.

          Once again, thank you very much for all your efforts in creating the course material.
