Jeudi 5 octobre 2023 Salle G 101 de 10h30 à 12h30
Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have sparked public debate and raised concerns about the future of humanity. What will AI innovations mean for the people in the USA, France, and the rest of Western Europe? In this talk, Prof. James Katz will take historical and contemporary perspectives to analyze the upcoming transformation in daily life and explore the subsequent conflict points affecting policy for AI development.
A special focus of Prof. Katz's inquiry will be on ChatGPT and other large language models, which are already in widespread use at universities and are altering educational processes. These technologies also have important implications for career and employment opportunities.
Prof. Katz will also outline the trade-offs between careful regulation of AI to mitigate its negative consequences and levying excessive burdens that will stifle useful AI-based innovations. He will conclude his remarks by commenting on the longer-range future of humanity as AI becomes ever-more powerful
