G109:15-10:30ChatGPT - an AI milestone with enormous potential for research and public healthThe development of ChatGPT - and large language models in general - represents a significant milestone in the field of AI. The model has achieved remarkable success in natural language processing tasks, such as language translation, question answering, and text completion. At the same time, the model is also often hallucinating, and making things up, all the while sounding very convincing. It thus presents both incredible opportunities as well as an enormous challenge given its potential for misinformation generation. This workshop aims to provide an overview of how ChatGPT works, how it was trained, and why it is so much better than anything else before. We will then have an open discussion about the potential impact of this technology development on science and research generally, and public health specifically. Audience: all
