R4 Connections Webinar Series
Introduction to Generative AI Tools
Date and Time: March 21, 2024 at 12:00 PM PT/1:00 PM MT/2:00 PM CT/3:00 PM ET
Guest Speaker: Chris Guerra, Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records
Description: In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital technology, generative artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a transformative force, offering groundbreaking tools such as ChatGPT, Bard, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion. And although the core principles underlying these AI technologies are not entirely new, the enhanced accessibility of these tools is enabling a broader audience to leverage AI's potential, including in the biomedical field. This presentation therefore aims to provide a foundational understanding of how generative AI can be utilized, while simultaneously addressing potential risks and ethical concerns, so that individuals and organizations can make more informed decisions around their implementation.
