TLDR: A final note about AI (for now) on my thinking journey around AI and my work. May be helpful to fellow facilitators, trainers and workshop designers interested in how to use emergent and generative AI in their work.

Tools that have immediate practical benefits

These are tools that are less of a “fall down the rabbit hole” (with apologies to Lewis Caroll and Alice in Wonderland) experience and more practical.

DeepL:
Amazing for translating content into other languages. Not free, but much better results than free tools like Google Translate, in my experience. See: https://www.deepl.com/translator.

Otter.ai:
Great for taking voice notes of a meeting and real-time transcription. Be mindful of privacy etc.
See: https://otter.ai/.

Grammarly and co:
I use the free version of Grammarly as a sanity check in MS Word, but I believe the paid version is very helpful for professional writers and non-native English speakers. This and other tools can greatly reduce errors, make you aware of when your writing is getting too convoluted, and change your writing behaviour (in a good way!).
See: https://www.grammarly.com/ and also https://www.grammarlookup.com/, https://prowritingaid.com/, https://sentencecheckup.com/, https://hemingwayapp.com/.

Nvidia broadcast:
This is an incredible tool for online facilitators, although you need a system that has Nvidia GPU. It allows you to do all sorts of interesting things, including maintain eye contact through your camera at all times, which can make people feel seen and heard.
