ChatGPT, LLMs, and the future of data science
Ben Auffarth

The ChatGPT and the GPT models by OpenAI have brought about a revolution in the way we think about the world and not only how we write texts, but how we can process information about the world. Let's discusses the capabilities, and limitations of large language models including ChatGPT, about possible applications, tooling, data security, wider societal implications, and ethics. Some applications have gone as far as automating data analysis so this also poses a question about the future of data science.
