The Harms and Benefits of Generative AI: Exploring the Differences Between Fluency and Fact
The Digital Safety Research Institute (DSRI) at UL Research Institutes has partnered with the Center for Advancing Safety of Machine Intelligence (CASMI) at Northwestern University to explore the safety of artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.
On April 3 CASMI hosted a virtual panel discussing the harms and benefits of generative artificial intelligence (AI) systems. The rise of large language models, such as chatGPT, has captured the attention of the general public. However, there seems to be a deep misunderstanding as to what they actually are. Watch the panelists discuss exploring the capabilities and limitations of generative AI as well as next steps for research and practical use.
