|ChatGPT and the University||Generative AI tools such as ChatGPT, Codex, and MidJourney are changing the world fast. In some courses you may be asked to use generative AI, or have an assignment that one of these tools could make significantly easier. In this workshop, we’ll discuss some of these tools, and general considerations about their use, as well as university expectations for authentic, original, independent work, and when it’s appropriate to leverage generative AI to support your academic and career goals. Presented by Ori Fienberg, Associate Director of Academic Quality & Integrity|
