Again, I asked ChatGPT about who should attend Metaverse One. As for timeline – I wrote my answers first and asked ChatGPT second.

For transparency, I asked ChatGPT to write me that paragraph for Call for Speakers, starting with Calling all experts, innovators, and thought leaders. I had to do minor changes, but I have to say it is a powerful tool. Thinking the Metaverse and the Metaverse tech & era. AI is there and it is fundamentally changing things and disrupting how we do work today. That is why we have also plenty of Artificial Intelligence in the Metaverse One 2023 schedule.
