As an introduction to the focus of our programme this year - AI - we will give a brief introduction to ChatGPT and some of the implications of the widespread use of similar AI technologies. This will be followed by a chance to give your views on these and related issues. In subsequent months we will have speakers giving different perspectives on AI and its implications.
