Talk Abstract

In this talk, we'll consider the dynamic world of generative AI and its growing impact on every element of society. We begin with a definition of generative AI: a straightforward look at what it is and its capabilities and limitations.
We then transition to practical insights, examining how AI tools are currently being used in a wide variety of settings. This will include some instruction on how you might adapt generative AI to your own needs and use cases. The final part of the talk looks forward, discussing the near-future implications of AI in research and teaching.
