This month’s column was more about artificial intelligence (AI) than elbow pain. I wanted to see how artificial intelligence could be useful in writing this month’s column. I chose a topic that I knew very well so that I could assess the relevance of the article. “Write a journal article comparing tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow.” This is the task I asked the AI application, ChatGPT, to perform. A very simple task for a certified hand therapist. Apparently, this is also an easy task for the AI. In just a few seconds, the text below was produced.
Please read this and learn more about these elbow conditions. On a deeper level, think about AI and its impact on society. I’d be willing to bet it will change life and work as we know it. The potential for good and bad change has not yet been identified, but there is no doubt that it will happen, and the potential for good and bad change will be there.
