Ariadne News & Events

Funders’ lunchtime learning sessions: What is ChatGPT and why does it matter? This session will be presented by Daniel Leufer (Senior Policy Analyst at Access Now) A conversation with a chatbot resembling a human interaction is the new reality in everyday situations. Seemingly well-articulated answers are often times plausible sounding but incorrect information. For users, it is becoming increasingly hard to spot misinformation in these interactions. Unfortunately, the datasets that these chatbots are trained on are also biased, and their environmental cost is estimated to be high. Daniel Leufer will provide an introduction to generative AI and ChatGPT, and participants will have the opportunity to engage on the topic during the Q&A. In case you have any topics in mind that you would like to hear more about, please let us know ahead of the session. The event will take place on Tuesday 20 June at 13:00 CET via Zoom. Details to register are available on our Members-only Portal.
