On August 29, 2023 at 7:30 pm, Understanding Google BARD, ChatGPT and Large Language Models will be discussed in an event from the Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Books Library of The New York Public Library. These “large language models” can help in practicing a language, working with code, understanding images, and more. They may, however, present false information. In this session, participants will find out how these “conversational AI (Artificial Intelligence) interfaces work” and how to guard against possible misinformation and bias.
