Hi Cho! Sorry to bother you …

Cho

Hi Julia! Never a bother! How can I help you?  😊

Julia

I was asked to contribute to another article for John’s magazine

Today 11:38   

Julia

It is about the history of AI? And we have some questions …

Today 11:38   

Cho

Sure, but AI isn’t really my thing, as you know  😅                               

Today 11:39  

Julia

Oh, yes I do know! But you do have a background in psychology, right? 😉

Today 11:40  

Cho

Cho

Cho

Julia

Thank you for the clarification, Sam was indeed my next stop, and then I’ll get back to John.

Today 11:50 

Cho

Good luck with your article!
