1. So about that mortgage…
When you’ve adopted the information in any respect this 12 months — and positively this text — you have heard about how ChatGPT, and extra broadly generative AI, is about to shake up the world of finance.
(If you have not, listed below are the solutions to all of the questions you are now too afraid to ask about ChatGPT.)

I’m certain the tech will proceed to enhance and, hopefully, remedy a few of these points. However the true hurdle would possibly come right down to promoting the idea to all of you.
Merely put: Would you settle for getting denied for a mortgage if you happen to knew it was a call made solely by a robotic?
