Ask your AI questions to an OpenAI employee!
Artificial intelligence (AI) is fundamentally changing society and presents incredible opportunities, as well as ethical and business considerations. Featuring keynote Zack Kass from Open AI, McIntire's Fall Forum will specifically explore the incredible business value of AI, with a deep dive into the use case with which we are all becoming familiar - generative AI tools like OpenAI's Chat GPT. After the keynote, a moderated panel will explore how generative AI is augmenting human capabilities and enhancing business processes within organizations while simultaneously raising concerns about job displacement and data privacy.
