An Immersive Intro to AI

From ethics to applications

This comprehensive program provides both a foundational introduction to AI as well as hands-on training in cutting-edge generative AI models.

We start by exploring the history and evolution of AI, including an introduction to core machine learning concepts. This provides the base knowledge needed to understand modern AI systems.

Next, we dive into generative AI, including an overview of major models like DALL-E and Whisper, and how to use them via APIs. Prompt engineering skills are developed to allow you to get the most out of these powerful models.

ChatGPT is covered in-depth, with guidance on prompt formulation strategies to improve results for text generation, information retrieval, and more. You’ll get hands-on experience interacting with ChatGPT.

Finally, we examine ethical considerations in applying AI, such as bias, explainability, privacy, and security. This equips you to use AI technologies responsibly.

By the end, you’ll have a 360-degree understanding of AI, from foundational machine learning to leveraging cutting-edge generative models, all grounded in ethical principles. The program provides the perfect blend of theory and hands-on practice.

Outcomes for Attendees:

  • Evaluate generative AI models and applications in terms of ethics, privacy, security, bias, and other considerations
  • Utilize prompt engineering strategies and OpenAI APIs to create outputs with DALL-E, Whisper, and other generative AI models.
  • Analyze the evolution of AI methods from early machine learning approaches to modern generative models like ChatGPT.
