Praxis Workshop: Understanding and Applying Generative A.I.

February 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Praxis Workshop and AI + Humanities Lab: Generative AI with Aaron Tucker, Praxis Workshop on Monday 5 February 2024. Please register on Zoom

Are you ready to learn more about how artificial neural networks and machine learning techniques work? Join us to discover how these technologies can transform your teaching and research, opening new dimensions in higher education. In this introductory-level workshop, participants will learn the basics of how text-based and image-based Generative AI, such as ChatGPT and DALL-E, operate. First, we will explore the basics of artificial neural networks and provide an overview of contemporary machine learning techniques. Then, participants will apply this knowledge to their own pedagogy, research, and research creation. 

Participants will apply their understanding of how Generative AI works to redesign an assignment or project in a course they teach. This involves combining Generative AI outputs with distinct human skills and developing clear guidelines for students about the use and documentation of Generative AI tools. Participants will also develop specific and concrete strategies to integrate Generative AI into their research creation endeavors. 

Before the workshop begins, participants are asked to please sign up for ChatGPT (https://chat.openai.com/auth/login) and DALL-E (https://openai.com/dall-e-3). This workshop is designed for faculty, postdocs, and graduate student researchers. 

Workshop facilitator: Dr. Aaron Tucker is a SSHRC post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto in the Faculty of Information recreating the Canadian history of artificial intelligence as a techno-national project.

This event is co-sponsored by CDHI and the new AI + Humanities Lab directed by LK Bertram.
