MobileViews Podcast 441: Don’t press the academic panic button because of ChatGPT & other enduser AI tools


ChatGPT

Jon Westfall and I briefly discuss my ongoing search for deciding how Apple’s Freeform fits into my note taking efforts. We also discuss Jon’s experience after upgrading from the first to second generation Apple AirPods Pro. However, we spend most of the podcast discussing the recent emergence of end-user accessible AI tools such as ChatGPT. In particular, we discuss Jon’s view of its impact in higher eduction. Note: Jon is an Associate Professor of Psychology.

MobileViews Podcast 433: Reflecting on 2022 – transitions and losses


GoodNotes 5 – Apple iPad app of the year for 2022

This is Jon Westfall’s last MobileViews podcast for 2022. In this podcast we reflect on 2022.

    The past 12 months have been one of transitions and losses
  • Todd lost a pet last December
  • Both of us lost our Moms in 2022
  • Elon Musk bought Twitter and, without being political, set off a firestorm leading to renewed interest in alternate open-ish social platforms
  • The global pandemic seems to have come to a psychological (if not biological) end – except in China
  • What has changed in tech – video conferencing goes main stream.
  • The impact of the pandemic and Russia/Ukraine war on the economy and supply chain – impact on tech
  • Todd is retiring at the end of 2022
  • We’re seeing the Pandemic effect on tech innovation – the last 12 months seem to be mostly small upgrades, nothing major from any tech companies. The pipeline hopefully is refilling.
  • Microsoft lays off journalists to replace them with AI

    MSN Fired Its Human Journalists and Replaced Them With AI That Started Publishing Fake News About Mermaids and Bigfoot

  • Apple App Store Awards winners
    Only one that Jon knows of or found interesting was Locket, which made a splash earlier this year. Innovative idea in an era of social media – much more one-on-one vs. one-to-many
