Documenting and transmitting cultural heritage to future generations is an important task and responsibility for individuals involved in the field of archaeology. To fulfill this responsibility, it is necessary to make the most of today's technology. Therefore, it is inevitable to benefit from the documentation methods brought by technology, which has been increasingly prevalent in recent years. The main reason for this obligation is the necessity of documenting cultural assets with the most accurate documentation methods possible. This ensures the protection of cultural assets and excavation sites, as well as the transmission of data to the future. This study will present for the first time the documentation methods used in the Gymnasium structure located in the ancient city of Side in the Pamphylia Region, along with the results obtained. In addition, Artificial Intelligence (AI-ChatGPT) was loaded with examples presented in this study through applications at Side ancient city in Pamphylia Region, and a report was requested on the article. The AI prepared an independent report based on the examples presented in the article. The report has shown that in the future, AI technology will be able to collect and evaluate data to reach a conclusion and prepare an article on the subject. This study is important because it combines the documentation of cultural heritage, the use of technology and the analysis of artificial intelligence.
