Do you use GPS rather than a paper map to plan a route? If so, you are already using AI and may not even know it.  Larry is back to take us on a brief journey into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Together, we will explore the history of AI, understand its various types, and discover practical applications in education, art, medicine and more. There will be a focus on ChatGPT and Bard, which can help you generate content, solve problems, and maybe make informed decisions.

What to expect:

No prior technical knowledge is required. We’ll address ethical considerations, privacy, and biases in AI. By the end, you’ll feel empowered to apply AI in your daily life, making it a valuable asset for both personal and professional endeavors. (This description was prepared with the help of Bard and ChatGPT.)
