Recent advances in generative AI have made everyone crazy (in ways good and bad). Everyone it seems is using ChatGPT to answer questions, plan menus, and write love letters—when they’re not using Midjourney or Stable Diffusion to draw astronauts on a horse in the style of Andy Warhol.

In this talk, Professor Dan Hunter examines how generative AI models like are built, sketches their meteoric rise, and discusses some of the profound legal and ethical issues created by large language models.

This event is in-person only. Please register on Eventbrite.
