From The Desk of Toby Clem (No AI tools were used to write this piece, but we did have a good conversation)
AI is part of our future. As individuals. As business people. As companies. As a society.
I thought it would be interesting to hear from ChatGPT about what it meant to run an efficient restoration business.
It was certainly interesting. And it prompted some questions that I have never hesitated to ask a human, so I certainly challenged the artificial intelligence machine.
Here is how it went.
