Is everyone in your law firm or company, experimenting with OpenAI’s ChatGPT? Especially your leaders.
In an article this morning, The Wall Street Journal makes a strong case they should be.
“I spend way more time thinking and way less time writing (correspondence and notes). I don’t want to be the one who doesn’t use it, because someone who is using it is going to have a lot of advantages.”
He’s not alone.
“At the Oklahoma headquarters of driller Devon Energy, leadership grew excited about ChatGPT after a group of technicians showed that they could use the tool to test their computer code, said Trey Lowe the company’s chief technol-ogy officer. The group manages the firm’s automation system, which controls equipment in oil fields.
“Telmo Gomes the co-founder and IT director of LiveSense, which is based in Melbourne, Australia, said ChatGPT saves him significant time on research. After his company was hired to develop a system that can detect vaping in public places, he spent hours calling people and googling to determine which sensors worked best. Information was limited; other companies selling vaping detection solutions didn’t disclose what they were using.
Then he typed the question into ChatGPT. Within a few seconds, it spat back several answers, including ones that exactly mirrored the solutions he’d settled on from his research. It also added a note of caution to consider the ethics of monitoring people’s behaviors.
“It completely blew my mind,” Mr. Gomes said. “We’re a small company. It will let us do more with less.””

Mr. Lowe said the company hopes ChatGPT will one day be capable of looking up academic repositories and summing up, say, a hundred scientific papers about hydrogen into a concise report. “For some individuals, just a summary of it will be 100% beneficial to helping them make a decision,” he said.”
These companies are not law firms, but their use of ChatGPT demonstrate that efficiency and an improved work product lies in the the use of ChatGPT.
Don’t get caught up in the discussion that GPT is not going to replace what I do.
GPT is not meant to replace what we do, it’s a tool to assist us. Per the Journal article,
