MORNING PROGRAM: PANEL & LUNCH **SOLD OUT**

9:45 AM – 12:30 PM, Penn Pavilion

Panel Discussion: “Major Moves at Big Tech”

ChatGPT and other generative AI models have taken the world by storm. How do these models work? How will they transform how we work, think, learn, evaluate art and beauty in the world? How might they also lead to further erosion of trust in the use of technology and deepen inequities, as future sources of ‘truth’ for training models are recursively fed by these generative AI texts? What are the responsibilities of individuals in developing, interacting, and implementing these models? This panel will engage experts as we tackle a range of issues related to the use of ChatGPT-3, including the potential for it to be used for malicious purposes, the impact it could have on employment, and the ethical responsibilities of those who develop and deploy the technology.

Moderator:
David Hoffman, Steed Family Professor of the Practice of Cybersecurity Policy at the Sanford School of Public Policy and Senior Lecturing Fellow at the School of Law, Duke University

Panelists:
Casey Fiesler – Associate Professor in the Department of Information Science and Computer Science, University of Colorado at Boulder
