  • 1.  Generative AI Tools

    Posted Oct 23, 2023 08:30 AM

    Leading up to our discussion on generative AI on November 8, I thought it might be helpful to share some information that you can explore before we meet if you have the time and inclination. For those that are less familiar with generative AI, try to explore one or more of the following tools over the next couple of weeks so you have more to discuss about generative AI and how it might affect libraries and library leadership and management. I've listed 2-3 AI for chatbots, research, and art. 

    AI Chatbots

    Bard

    ChatGPT

    Research AI

    Elicit: The AI Research Assistant

    Research Rabbit

    Art AI

    DALL·E 2

    Midjourney

    Night Cafe

    Good morning, everyone and happy Halloween. To help generate some discussion for next Wednesday, here are several articles that you can read prior to our meeting as time permits. This is optional, so if you do not have time to read them, please still join in on the discussion. If you choose to read one or more of them, they are listed with links in their titles, not in any particular order of importance. There are MANY more articles about ChatGPT and other generative AI, but these are a few that may have some content that would be interesting to discuss.

    Good morning. I'm looking forward to our discussion this Wednesday (Nov. 8) at 12pm central time on generative AI. I hope you've had a chance to explore some generative AI or review some of the articles I posted last week, but these were optional activities leading up to our discussion. To help make our discussion more meaningful on Wednesday, please think about generative AI and what questions you have about how it may affect library leadership and management and how we might (or maybe should) respond. I'll have some questions to guide our discussion, but I also want to leave plenty of time for all of your questions.
