We have been hearing a lot about how OpenAI's ChatGPT conversational AI can supplement our workflow. Maybe, in the near-ish future it will help us better utilize our GPS machine control systems or optimize an earthmoving plan on a commercial or road grading project.
We thought it would be fun to ask ChatGPT how to get the most out of attending Conexpo. Admittedly, a simple question, but a regular Google search does not give us simple and easy to follow results.
ChatGPT gave us an on-point list of tips to maximize our experience. We've posted them, verbatim, below.
Before we get to the that, ChatGPT did miss one KEY POINT we would be negligent to ignore.
Visit Quantum Land Design's booth in the West Hall (W43207)! I am sure that by Conexpo 2026 artificial intelligence will KNOW that our booth is the place to be.
