How to create a survey with ChatGPT (Use cases)
The article discusses how ChatGPT can be helpful in creating surveys, but emphasizes the need for clear instructions and corrections, as well as the final refinement of the questions by the user.

Users may need to provide additional prompts to specify context or correct logical mistakes in order to obtain less generic responses. Marek Strba 03/24

Don't democratize UX research - and governance for those doing it
Democratization is something few of us would choose if we had alternatives. We would want budget and headcount to grow the UX Research department. A team stretched thin is told not only to let anybody do some or all of their jobs, but that they will need to train and oversee this work. Spotify Apple 03/28
