I started a channel (#ai) for this on Slack, but think the forum would be a better place for discussion.
I am wondering if anyone in the docs community is or is interested in using any form of AI in their workflow. I haven’t come across any other discussions on the topic as it relates to documentation, so hopefully some people will chime in with their ideas on how this might be accomplished, and whether or not it is even a good idea.
Currently, I have been eyeing [IBM’s Watson technology] as a promising platform. However, it seems that there is quite a lot of manual labor involved at this point and I’m not sure it would be very useful in the context of documentation. But I’m sure they are hard at work on enhancements, and wouldn’t it be cool to have the full-blown Jeopardy Champion, trained on your technology, at your disposal!
Another interesting development is that Apple’s Siri is being opened up to 3rd party developers and will be part of the upcoming macOS release this fall.
