AI Webinar: How to Harness Generative AI for Education

August 31, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Can generative AI like ChatGPT be creative? Can it be trusted? The answers to these two questions may be surprisingly intertwined–and counterintuitive. Understanding why requires overturning some common misperceptions about probability, the fundamental driver of large language models. In this webinar, Jon Ippolito leads a conversation meant to clarify the confusing nature of generative AI and derive a framework for deciding the appropriate use of generative AI in the classroom and the workplace.

Moderated by: Dr. Julia Upton, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Husson University; IEEE Maine Section Chair and IEEE Maine Communications/Computer Societies Joint Chapter Chair

Speaker: Jon Ippolito, Professor of New Media, Co-Director of Still Water Lab, and Director of the Digital Curation graduate program, University of Maine.
