Join authors Reid Hoffman & Nicholas B. Dirks in conversation about innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) & in Higher Education-including the potential of AI, especially the powerful large language models like GPT-4, in shaping the future of education, business, & creativity.
In Hoffman's new book, Impromptu: Amplifying Our Humanity Through AI, he collaborates with GPT-4, showcasing its capabilities, strengths, & limitations. Through this interactive exploration, readers witness a compelling vision of the future, where AI becomes not a threat but a transformative partner, unlocking the full potential of humanity.
In City of Intellect: Uses & Abuses of the University, Dirks wrestles with some of the most urgent questions with which educational leaders are presently having to engage: including topics such as free speech & campus safe spaces, the humanities' contested future, the growing demand for technical knowledge, & the real cost & value of liberal arts learning.

In-person participants will receive a complimentary hard copy of both Impromptu & City of Intellect.
