Experiments in Creativity with Dave Birss

Making AI useful for everyone

Demystifying AI, helping you see its potential and giving you the tools to become better at what you already do.

There’s a popular saying in the AI community:

You won’t lose your job to AI; but you might lose it to other people using AI.

And if that’s true, you really need to get to grips with AI as soon as you possibly can. That’s exactly what I want to help you do.

Here are a couple of ways I can do that:

Take my LinkedIn Learning course on Prompt Engineering

Join instructor Dave Birss for a crash course in generative AI and learn how to get started with prompt engineering for ChatGPT and other chatbots to upskill as a researcher and a writer.

Dave’s got the inside scoop on creating effective prompts that actually deliver high-quality, task-relevant results. He’ll give you a rundown of some key considerations when working with generative AI, plus hands-on, practical strategies to help you step up your research and writing game. You’ll learn how to summarize complex info, view subjects from multiple perspectives, build user personas and strategic models, analyze writing style, outline ideas, and generate new content.

After taking this course, you’ll be ready to harness the power of ChatGPT and other chatbots to consistently deliver killer writing outcomes. Say goodbye to writer’s block and hello to the future of AI-assisted writing!
