Life After JCMU

Last week, I visited my study abroad alma mater, the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, to talk and answer questions about the JET Program, reverse culture shock, and life “after Japan.” (I’m just glad I made it through the whole thing without once using the JET cliche, “Every situation is different.”)

No recording of the talk exists, but the director of the center snapped a picture before I left.

“Microcontent Pipeline to Chatbots and Voice Assistants”

Use microcontent to put your team in the driver’s seat to the next level of content publishing for intelligent chatbots. By now reality has revealed that ChatGPT is not ready to write our product documentation for us. With no control over what the publicly-trained models scrape from our websites and blogs and how it assimilates our documentation with other less-authoritative sources, we’re left to wonder where we go next. If we want reliable bots, we’ll need to train our own models and deploy them to our staff and our customers. Let us show you what we’ve learned so far.
