ChatGPT in Context: A Discussion about Artificial Intelligence
March 2 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
- Tom Haigh, History (co-author, A New History of Modern Computing, MIT Press, 2021)
- Susan McRoy, Computer Science (author, Principles of Natural Language Processing, 2021, https://uwm.pressbooks.pub/naturallanguage/, and Chair, Computer Science)
Join us for a discussion about artificial intelligence and the technologies that got us to ChatGPT – and what generative language models (and other forms of AI) might mean for knowledge work. Haigh and McRoy will put AI and ChatGPT in historical context and present a basic framing of technologies such as large language models and neural networks that make generative AI like ChatGPT possible, and discuss both its promise and perils.
