Generative AI: more than just hype?

Generative AI: more than just hype?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

This is a newsroom ThinkIn. In-person and digital-only tickets are available.

The new wave of generative AI, like DALL-E and ChatGPT has sent the tech world, investors, and quite a few students into a frenzy.

VCs are pouring money into AI startups, to the sum of more than $2 billion last year and the large tech companies are buying their way into the vanguard of generative AI. Advocates point to the huge transformative potential in sectors like education, research, media, the arts and more – but could this be another technology that’s likely to get lost in its own hype? What’s really going on in the world of generative AI, and what questions should we be asking about it?
