AI or HI? (Artificial Intelligence or Human Intelligence)
By now we’ve all heard about AI and its growth in all aspects of our lives.
Chatbots have the ability to retrieve and repackage information at speeds that are well beyond normal human capabilities, and digital assistance apps are set to revolutionise productivity in many workplaces and change the tech landscape.
One of those apps, ChatGPT, is making writing much easier for the general population by assisting with tasks like composing daily emails up to higher-level tasks like composing essays. Some experts warn these tools are far from perfect. Although chatbots seem to answer any question confidently, they aren’t always correct and sometimes don’t include basic facts.
Which leads to the question: what are the implications of AI apps for editing and proofreading?
Research shows that AI tools are great for identifying potential issues. Human editors though have vastly superior capacities for making relevant style changes and explaining why they were necessary. Apps like Chat GPT can detect technical errors and inconsistencies, however, they can also tend to standardise the English language.
The human touch is needed to retain language diversity, tone, and style nuances and to avoid potentially embarrassing mistakes.
I am a human, you can contact me for your editing and proofreading needs!
You probably employ staff.
They need to go to the bathroom.
They eat a muffin.
They say Hi (and more) to their colleagues.
Following I have compiled some thoughts about how your time and money get used or even wasted.
Today it’s more important to run a lean business than ever before.
Business is competitive, the marketplace is ruthless, and you need to keep expenses down.
The only way to keep your head above water is maximising the return you make on business investments, especially for managing staff.
Here's an example:
An employee that earns $50,000 a year and wastes an hour each day will cost your company $6,250.
This hour does not get wasted in hour-long blocks but in moments.
And then they need to get back on track.
Each minute of interruption takes another minute to refocus on work.
This adds easily up to an hour or more per day.
It will cost you around 10% of the wages you pay in actual cash.
When you engage someone working for you remotely, we only charge you for the time we actually work, and NOT for:
- bathroom time
- checking our own email
- finding a file
- talking to a friend
Try it out, contact me, and let's save you some money!
