Meredith Broussard is a computer scientist AND journalist. She has found a way to combine the two by using data to inform her writing (data journalist). She is on a mission to demystify technology and AI in particular. AI (artificial intelligence) isn't extraordinary, she says, "it's just math." She believes that Chat GPT is fun and innovative and like other technologies have some flaws to be worked out.
