Powerful Large Language Models, such as GPT3.5 and GPT4 are able to carry out increasingly complex tasks with textual data. It seems inevitable that they will have an increasing impact on how we conduct qualitative research in the future. I have been experimenting with diverse approaches and also investigating the legal conditions for using the technologies. I have developed an interactive hands-on workshop to help you explore the technology yourself and spark discussions on the opportunities.*
