ChatGPT and Generative AI: Implications for Libraries and Education Online
Since its debut in late 2022, much has been written about ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chatbot that generates text answers to user prompts, from limericks and recipes to lesson plans and essays. Microsoft has since integrated ChatGPT into Bing and Google has responded with the development of Bard, promising to change how users search the web in the coming months and years. In this session we'll discuss how generative AI technology works, legal and ethical concerns surrounding its development and application, and how library staff might leverage generative AI technologies in information literacy instruction, reference, and other library work. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with one another to brainstorm potential uses and limitations of using ChatGPT and other generative AI applications in libraries and education. After attending this session, participants will be able to describe at least one use and one limitation of ChatGPT and generative AI as an educational technology and give at least two examples of legal or ethical concerns surrounding the use of ChatGPT or generative AI in education.
