AI and Research Work, Oct 10, 2023
The discussion is arranged around the following main themes:
- A short introduction to LLMs and generative AI
- Practical cases of use generative AI in the research project lifecycle: brainstorming and planning, data analysis (software and code), publishing
- Responsible use of generative AI, ethical and legal considerations
We will cover topics such as: generative AI tools for researchers, prompt engineering, "chat with PDFs", software tools for large language models, open-source large language models, limitations of these approaches, other AI tools useful in research (e.g. automatic transcriptions), upcoming AI-related legislation. Come join this discussion!
Who can participate?
The webinar is aimed at staff and students who are interested in a basic introduction to AI in research work. The session offers a broad overview on the topic rather than providing details on any discipline-specific solutions. No prior knowledge of AI is required. Some information covered in the session, such as details of Aalto’s RDM services, is relevant only to those working at Aalto.
The session consists of two parts: c. 60-minute presentation and a discussion session.
Schedule and location
The training will be held online via Zoom on October 10, at 1–2.30 PM Eastern European Time (EET).
