ChatGPT: Fear, Hype, or Hope? Education and research practices and ethics in the generative AI era

You’ve probably heard a lot in the last few months about the generative AI system ChatGPT, and you may well have used it.  This session will provide a chance to hear from and have conversations with leading experts on the technical areas underlying ChatGPT and other generative AI, the uses of generative AI in university and K-12 education, and the ethical and societal issues associated with generative AI tools. It will feature brief presentations by and ample time for audience questions with a distinguished panel:

  • Professor Jim Martin (Department of Computer Science and Institute of Cognitive Science), an expert on natural language processing and large language models
  • Associate Professor Diane Sieber (Herbst Program for Engineering, Ethics & Society), a pioneer in education bridging technology, humanities and arts
  • Associate Professor Tom Yeh (computer science), a leading researcher in human-computer interaction who has studied the use of generative AI in introductory programming and K-12 settings. 

The panel will be moderated by Bobby Schnabel, external chair of computer science, founding director of the ATLAS Institute and former CEO of the Association for Computing Machinery.
