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. This webinar aims 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.
The webinar is led by Jon Ippolito, Professor of New Media, director of the Digital Curation program, and co-founder of UMaine's larger Learning With AI initiative. The conversation is moderated by Dr. Julia Upton, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Husson University and IEEE Maine Section Chair.
This UMaine AI webinar is also sponsored by the University of Maine's New Media program, which teaches animation, digital storytelling, gaming, music, physical computing, video, and web and app development. These are not Powerpoint lectures but guided demonstrations that students can follow at school or at home on their laptops. Learn more about these webinars.
