Two-day interactive workshop on AI in research

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has advanced rapidly. In this process, academic research and AI havebecome more and more intertwined. This workshop offers an introduction to the proper use of Generative AI in research. It will take place online and include interactive activities that will augment the trainer’s input.

The workshop will be structured as followed:

• Introduction to ChatGPT (or similar Large Language Model, LLM) and its capabilities
• Hands-on session: How and when to use LLMs as a researcher
• Examples: using diffusion models (text-to-image) in research
• Discussion on the potential implications of generative models in research

You will receive training material to test and deepen your learnings. In the weeks between the first and the second workshop day, you will have enough time to go through the material and apply your learnings. On the second workshop day, you will reflect on your learnings.
To maximize your learning experience we recommend that you create a login with OpenAI (or use an existing Google account) and use chatGPT at least once.
