Open AI is the newest set of AI tools that are shaking the world of higher education. Some conversations are going on how to change assessment so that students do not use such tools to cheat. Others, on the contrary, embrace the possibility to experiment with the tools as part of assignments, and also take the challenge to come up with more creative assignments.
This debate is relevant to liberal arts education and to all AMICAL stakeholders- faculty, librarians, IT. Whether one is playing around with text- generators to create lesson plans, thinks of ways to spot AI- generated content, is testing whether AI can generate an appropriate list of references, is using AI generated content as a comparison material or for critique, or does not know where to start (or hasn’t heard of it at all), this workshop aims to accommodate all. This workshop is intended as interactive and hands-on and aims to offer the space for attendees to gain practical experience with AI tools and platforms, in particular, text and image-generating AIs, consider how these tools can help them in their work, and think together about how to take the debate to their home institutions.
Specifically, we want to:
- Overview current text- and image-generating artificial intelligence systems
- Demonstrate features of some AI systems, such as ChatGPT, DALL-E, etc.
- Assist attendees to experiment and compare AI in their own practice
- Engage attendees in a critical discussion on concerns and opportunities of AI (text and image generators in particular)
