This is Susan Myers. I am not an expert on AI, but am naturally curious about technology in all forms. I have used Bard for shopping, helping me generate emails (when I was struggling for tone), giving me ideas for a structure for a LibGuide, and more. This topic guide is intended to be a starting place for thought and discussion. I am open to collaborators both on this guide and in using AI in academia. Feel free to email me or stop by my office.
Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to both the areas of computer science and engineering that aim to build intelligent computers as well as the human-like intelligence, judgment, learning, and awareness displayed by machines.
ChatGPT is a language model developed by OpenAI that uses the GPT-3.5 architecture. It is designed to generate human-like responses in natural language conversations. The model is trained on a vast amount of text data from the internet, allowing it to learn patterns, grammar, and contextual information. When given a prompt or a message, ChatGPT analyzes the input, generates possible completions based on its training, and ranks them to select the most appropriate response. It relies on the context provided by previous messages in the conversation to maintain coherence and relevance. The responses are generated by predicting the next word or phrase, taking into account the probability distribution of different options. While ChatGPT is capable of generating impressive and coherent responses, it may sometimes produce incorrect or nonsensical answers, so caution should be exercised when relying on its outputs.
DALL-E 2 is an advanced version of the original DALL-E model developed by OpenAI. It is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence model trained to generate unique and creative images from textual descriptions. DALL-E 2 combines the power of deep learning techniques and generative adversarial networks (GANs) to understand and interpret natural language prompts, enabling it to create highly detailed and realistic images based on those descriptions. This model expands on the capabilities of its predecessor, allowing for more complex and intricate image generation. It has been trained on a vast dataset of images and text, enabling it to generate novel and imaginative visual concepts. DALL-E 2 has the potential to revolutionize the field of computer-generated imagery, providing a powerful tool for artists, designers, and creators.
Bard is a large language model (LLM) chatbot developed by Google AI. It is trained on a massive dataset of text and code and can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. Bard is still under development, but it has learned to perform many kinds of tasks.
Bing and Microsoft have teamed up to update the original Bing search engine to include OpenAI's language model and answer questions and requests with a conversational style. Microsoft Bing claims to be more powerful than ChatGPT and is designed specifically for Internet searching.

I HIGHLY recommend the blog "One Useful Thing" by Ethan Mollick. I subscribed to it and receive his new posts in my email. He focuses on AI and its impact on work and education.
