Happy New Year! I was trying to understand the impact of ChatGPT by zooming out a bit.
– any subject area has a core / fundamental area (the science) and an applied area (use of the technique or application repeatedly towards the same or different problems)
– My assertion is that ChatGPT will impact applied area of any topic but not the core area relatively much, where understanding of the underlying building blocks is very important
Regardless, it will greatly improve experimentation in both areas by bringing down costs of initial testing of ideas/cross domain experiments (e.g., biological concept in electrical/mechanical design)
That is from my email by Anjan.
