Event Details

New generative AIs such as chatGPT and DALL-E have the potential to revolutionize various industries such as art, entertainment, and advertising, among others. They also raise ethical concerns about their malicious usage at generating deepfakes and other harmful content.

The European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS) unit of Milan has asked four academic experts to discuss the myths and risks associated with this technology in a public panel open to academics and students. The panel, organized under the PNRR-Future Artificial Intelligence Research, will examine the technical capabilities and limitations of generative AIs and address common misconceptions, such as the idea that these systems can operate independently without human oversight.

The event will be introduced by Riccardo Zecchina, Full Professor of Theoretical Physics at Università Bocconi. The panel will be moderated by Francesco Pierri, Postdoctoral Researcher of Computer Science at Politecnico di Milano.

Invited speakers: Mark Carman, Associate Professor Politecnico di Milano; Alfio Ferrara, Full Professor Università di Milano; Dirk Hovy, Associate Professor Università Bocconi; Gabriella Pasi, Full Professor Università di Milano Bicocca.
