In 2018 I took part part in a workshop at an e-learning conference on 
how to build a tutor bot using IBM's Watson. Mine answered questions 
about assignment extensions by saying "no". ;-) 

On Tuesday, Craig Thomler gave a demo of his Simple Marketing AI tool 
using Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 (GPT-3) for generating 
marketing material. It worked very well, but that is a low bar for AI.
