The Generative World: How AI is Already Disrupting Familiar Careers (online)

April 20, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Generative AI is expected to transform any career that depends on writing, coding, or audiovisual media — in other words, just about all of them. Who better to forecast how workers will adapt to these disruptions than New Media alumni already incorporating AI into their own planning and practice? This webinar offers reports from working professionals on ways that ChatGPT and Midjourney are having an impact today on business, software, and art. Presenters include Pattie Barry (Penske), John Bell (Dartmouth), Matt James (CourseStorm), and Eryk Salvaggio (RIT/Bradley), moderated by Jon Ippolito and Mike Scott (UMaine New Media).

Our alumni will tackle questions like:

* Will there still be jobs for coders or illustrators? If so, how will their workflows change?
* If AI can write or digest an email for me, how will that change how we communicate?
* How can I use generative AI to prepare for the job market?
* How should education change to target a workplace transformed by AI?

A collaboration between the New Media program and the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning.
