Whiteley Ballroom, Amora Hotel

Wednesday 14 June from 6pm to 8pm

The emergence of generative AI has captured the public’s consciousness, with ChatGPT being one of the most prominent examples of this new age technology. From art and music to healthcare and scientific research, generative AI has the potential to revolutionise a wide range of industries and fields. However, as with any powerful technology, there are significant ethical concerns and potential risks that must be addressed.
