categories: AI

The following is a short survey on the impact of AI on tech comm, specifically on technical writing and producing documentation. Many speculate that AI tools might soon automate many tech writing tasks, and there's growing concern that major disruption is imminent. Is that future dystopian, or will it unlock new opportunities? This survey seeks to take the pulse of tech comm, gathering the thoughts and feelings that tech writers have about AI and whether it will transform the practice of documentation.

April 10 note: The survey is now closed. Thanks for participating. See Survey results and analysis: Technical writers on AI.

After you take the survey, you can view the ongoing responses here.
