I was invited to try Google’s BARD artificial intelligence chat thingy a few days ago and I had a chance to try it this morning…….
I suspect my work as a blogger just got a whole lot easier, or irrelevant! 🙂
Here is my first question for BARD:
What is the difference between telecommuting and remote work?
And BARD’s response, which is pretty good by the way…… 🙂
“The terms telecommuting and remote work are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle difference between the two. Telecommuting refers to working from home or another location outside of the office, while remote work refers to working from anywhere, regardless of location.
Telecommuting is a more traditional way of working remotely, and it often involves employees working from home one or two days per week. Telecommuting employees may still be required to come into the office for certain meetings or events, but they typically have a great deal of flexibility in terms of their work hours and location.
Remote work, on the other hand, is a more recent trend that has been made possible by the rise of technology. Remote workers can live and work from anywhere in the world, and they are not required to come into the office at all. Remote work can be a great option for employees who want to live in a different city or country, or who want to have more flexibility in their work schedules.
There are both pros and cons to telecommuting and remote work. Telecommuting can be a great way to save money on commuting costs and to have more flexibility in your work schedule. However, it can also be difficult to stay focused and motivated when you are working from home. Remote work can also be a great way to save money on commuting costs and to have more flexibility in your work schedule. However, it can also be difficult to stay connected with your colleagues and to feel like you are part of a team when you are working from a different location.
The best option for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for a more traditional way of working remotely, telecommuting may be a good option for you. If you are looking for a more flexible way of working, remote work may be a better option.”
Then I asked another question:
What is coworking?
And Bard’s response was again pretty good.
“Coworking is a shared workspace where people from different companies or organizations can work together. Coworking spaces typically provide a variety of amenities, such as high-speed internet, comfortable seating, and access to conference rooms. Coworking spaces can be a great option for people who want to work in a collaborative environment, but who don’t want to commit to a traditional office lease.
Coworking spaces have become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more people are choosing to work remotely. Coworking spaces can provide a sense of community and belonging, as well as access to resources and support that can help freelancers and entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
Here are some of the benefits of coworking:
* **Cost savings:** Coworking spaces can be a more affordable option than renting an office space. You can often find coworking spaces that offer monthly or even weekly memberships, which can be a great option for freelancers or entrepreneurs who don’t need a full-time office.
* **Flexibility:** Coworking spaces offer a high degree of flexibility. You can choose to work from a coworking space on a regular basis, or just when you need a change of scenery. You can also choose to work from different coworking spaces, depending on your needs and preferences.
* **Collaboration:** Coworking spaces can be a great place to collaborate with other professionals. You can network with other freelancers and entrepreneurs, or work on projects with other members of the coworking space.
* **Community:** Coworking spaces can provide a sense of community. You can meet other professionals who are working in a similar field, and you can build relationships with other members of the coworking space.
If you’re looking for a flexible and affordable way to work, coworking may be a great option for you.
I then asked a tough question:
Who was the first person to test videoconferencing over ethernet?
Bard totally got it wrong, because…..it was ME…..and they picked someone else!

My life as a blogger has just changed!
But…..I feel obligated to tell my reader when the blog is from me, or from BARD!
It’s a new world!
