Is this because the hype’s wearing off? 

Are competitors are becoming more popular? 

Or is it because it’s Summer holiday’s and people are away from work or education?

Regardless of Chat GPT’s popularity, artificial intelligence is here to stay, and it's essential that we adapt to this new era. With the need for more skilled coders and AI specialists, National Coding Week highlighting it as its theme is a step in the right direction for creating a future where AI is harmoniously integrated into our lives.
