It's been one year since the public release of ChatGPT, the remarkable generative AI platform from OpenAI that has energized transformative promise (and controversy) in the tech sector.

We ask him about the new place in society and work that ChatGPT has seemingly carved out for itself, the ethical debate surrounding the use of LLMs and chatbots in academia, and just what this innovation means for industrial and systems engineers.Joe also welcomes questions you may have about ChatGPT and other generative AI tools. You can reach out to him at joe.wilck@gmail.com.Remember to subscribe and leave a review if you enjoyed the episode. Your feedback helps us grow and continue bringing you fascinating content!

I may be in the minority, but I think the Chick-FIL-A drive thru is a cluster. The wrap around line, iPad ordering and outside cashier seem to be bottlenecks at my local store. When I heard that they actually have IEs, I was in shock. I tell my wife everytime we go that they should've consulted with some IEs
