Course Description

With new AI tools, computers are competing with artists, writers, composers, etc. Anyone can write convincing essays, stories and poetry, draw and even paint like trained artists. Simply describe what is wanted in a prompt and get back a result which at first seems professional, although on deeper inspection may be less convincing. These new technologies threaten to uproot traditional notions of human creativity. There is extensive criticism of the new AI tools. Are they a threat to human creative artists? Do they appropriate works from the Internet without attribution or royalty payments? Will teachers be able to detect counterfeit student submissions? This study group starts by sampling together publicly available generators such as ChatGPT, Bard, DALL-E, and Stable Diffusion. Class discussion is encouraged, including Show-and-Tell of home experiments. The course will give a high-level view of how AI generators work. This is a repeat of the Fall 2023 course with the same name.
