 Hanspeter Pfister will discuss the most recent developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide an informed opinion about the state of AI and its implications for the future. In particular, he will discuss foundation models, such as ChatGPT and DALL-E, which are large neural networks trained on massive datasets. Foundation models exhibit sophisticated text and code generation, which can be combined to unlock surprising capabilities such as language-conditioned image generation.
