A special kind of blog today as I explore the use of technology, specifically OpenAI's ChatGPT, to deliver this post to you. On this Sunday afternoon, I was reading and scrolling when I stumbled upon ChatGPT and became curious about what it was, who started it, and more.
After researching, I discovered it was founded in 2015 in San Francisco by multiple investors and was inspired by an interview with co-founder Sam Altman. He spoke of the platform's open-minded approach to collaborative work for the positive benefit of humanity.- we all need a bit of that even if it is great marketing!
In my opinion, ChatGPT comes down to time management and productivity. Our daily routines are fast-paced. Our society tells us that we can achieve anything if we work hard, invest, and be more productive. But, sometimes this can become exhausting and we turn to quick fixes.

... Exhausting for the dance industry to have a consistant stream of financial security. There is no solving that today but ChatGPT met my personal need for quick answers to my questions, faster than I could find through Google or my own research. While it has room for improvement, I was pleased with what I discovered and the information it provided.
In my new line of work I get to ask a LOT of questions to help businesses so was interested to put this tool to work.
I asked ChatGPT about the limitations of dance in the UK, and it gave me a comprehensive answer:
There are several limitations of dance in the UK, including:
Funding: Dance can be a costly art form, and funding for dance companies and individual artists can be limited.
Accessibility: Not all communities have equal access to dance education and performance opportunities, which can lead to a lack of diversity in the dance sector.
Venue availability: Limited availability of performance venues and spaces suitable for dance can be a challenge for dance companies and artists.
Competition: The dance sector is highly competitive, and dancers may face challenges in securing work and making a sustainable career in dance.
Stereotyping and cultural biases: Dance is often seen as a marginal or niche art form, and certain styles and cultural backgrounds can be underrepresented or subject to stereotypes.
Health and safety: Dance can be physically demanding, and dancers may face health and safety risks such as injury, overuse of their bodies, and poor working conditions.
I was impressed with this answer and look forward to exploring these challenges further. For now though as a reader, can you see any solutions or suggestions that may improve your workplace? I then asked ChatGPT if health and safety is represented and implemented in the UK, and it confirmed that there are regulations and guidelines in place, including those from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). However, I noted that as an occupational health and safety consultant, these regulations do not address the practical physical aspects of training or injury management for small businesses or freelancers.
Significant improvements are needed especially in protecting dancers from injury regardless of age, cultural or financial background.
This brings me to the end of my AI blog experience which I have enjoyed as it has opened my mind to new possibilities...
Keep being your fabulous self :)
Until next time
