Generative AI: Opportunities and Risks

Although the WiTT team usually produces our event descriptions ourselves, we thought we’d ask ChatGPT to help out for our event on Generative AI (DALL-E drew the image.):

“Join us for an engaging and thought-provoking panel discussion on the exciting and rapidly evolving field of generative AI. Our distinguished panel of experts will explore the latest developments in generative AI, including the latest techniques and algorithms, as well as their applications in a range of industries.

Discover how generative AI is transforming the way we approach design, art, music, and more, and learn about the potential impact of these new technologies on society. From enhancing creativity to advancing medical research, the possibilities of generative AI are endless.

Our expert panel features top minds from academia and industry, who will share their latest research, insights, and perspectives on the future of generative AI. Join us for a stimulating and informative discussion, and gain a deeper understanding of this exciting field and its potential to shape the future of our world.”

Not bad, although not quite as balanced as this assessment from OpenAI’s CEO, Sam Altman: “the good case is just so unbelievably good that you sound like a crazy person talking about it,” but “the worst case is lights out for all of us.”

WiTT’s May event will examine the opportunities, risks and legal issues surrounding Generative AI.

Our panel will be chaired by Michelle Senecal de Fonseca, Vice President, Global Strategic Alliance Partnerships, at Citrix. Our speakers will include:

Shima Abbady, Associate, Bird & Bird.

Other speakers will be announced soon.

The evening will begin at 6:00pm with networking. The panel will run from 6:30 to 7:30, including Q&A. We’ll then have further networking. This event will also be hosted on Zoom. We’ll open the Zoom call at 6:25pm.
