In recent years, generative artificial intelligence has upended much, leaving winners and losers in its wake. Within academia, much of the focus has, understandably, been on the impact, whether positive or negative, on the writing process.
Whilst not denying the importance of these discussions, this session will try to move beyond such them. This will be done to help students reflect on how to engage critically with tools of generative artificial intelligence. Building on a research project that is exploring the value of ChatGPT as a tool for social science research, this interactive session run by Peter Finn will explore ways to think about the use of generative artificial intelligence in the context of international affairs and the workplace.
