It’s close to impossible to know exactly how our field will change, but change is coming. It’s time to turn toward these new, amazing technologies. In this session I will show a couple of the ways that Meta’s Doc Engineers have leveraged LLMs and AI. See how you, too, can embrace these new, amazing technologies and in doing so increase your overall efficiency and help shape the evolution of our craft.
