Embracing GenAI and Navigating the Future of Artificial Intelligence Responsibly

#STEM #YoungProfessionals #GenerativeAI #Technology #ChatGPT #AI

Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) is rapidly advancing and proving its capabilities in various fields. ChatGPT, as a leading technology, boasts an extensive and swiftly growing user base. While Large Language Learning Models (LLMs) won't eliminate the need for human involvement, those who can effectively utilize GenAI in their work will gain a competitive edge over those who cannot. In our course, we will delve into GenAI within the broader context of artificial intelligence, showcasing practical applications in industries like mining, aviation, and sustainability. Additionally, we will emphasize the importance of ResponsibleAI, exploring the roles of today's and future engineers in implementing and overseeing this technology responsibly.

Lunch will be provided.
