British Science Festival: 7-10 September 2023

IDSAI will be present to discuss Large Language Models, such as ChatGPT at this year's BSF, hosted at Exeter

IDSAI will be there on 7 September, with a stand on Artificially Intelligent' For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Large Language Models such as ChatGPT are Artificial Intelligence (AI) models that can write convincing essays, computer code, and answer open questions confidently. Used appropriately, it could provide a lot of positive outcomes for society; however, it is also open to misuse. So how can we make good use of this technology and at the same time protect ourselves from it being used in ways we don’t want? What are the limits on what it can do?

Event details

These are questions that IDSAI will be asking. Join us to get to grips with the technology by asking it a question or using it to co-write a poem. Challenge yourself to a Turing test and see if you can distinguish between a human response and that of a computer.
