Narcolepsy: A User’s Guide offers a unique perspective on narcolepsy and will be a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about this often-misunderstood condition.
Nicola Parigi is a student in her last year of a Master of Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing at The University of Melbourne. She has also completed a Graduate Diploma of Editing and Publishing at The University of Southern Queensland.
She has gained experience over the last few years by studying, completing a range of freelance editing jobs and with two internships. Nicola has a strong interest in the publishing process and what we can do to make it work most effectively for readers and writers. This book not only provides information on Narcolepsy but also looks into how AI technology can be used in the publishing process.
This book was made to answer the question: can ChatGPT be used to write an entire book? The answer is very much almost. Nicola chose the topic of narcolepsy because of her experience with the subject and started by asking ChatGPT what the ten most asked questions about narcolepsy were.
The process evolved from there. She found that editing and fact-checking were still very necessary. ChatGPT cuts off its response at approximately 600 words, which resulted in a lot of text being repeated in each section. Also, it can only access information from before September 2021 and so does not have the most current information and it does not have the capability to check the credibility of the information it collects.
Nicola was diagnosed with narcolepsy in November 2022 and had been suffering from it for a few years before that. She has research experience and is an editor. She has used these skills and knowledge to make this book as accurate as possible. She hopes those with narcolepsy find it useful and those curious about ChatGPT and its’ capabilities find it interesting.
