GSODI Forum on Open Data and Artificial Intelligence
April 21 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
A discussion of the value creation potential of aligning open data with AI, especially generative AIs like ChatGPT and Bloom, with reflections on public policy
This Open Data Forum will consist of a panel of eminent experts from the government, academia, business and media, and will present leading ideas on topics of growing importance related to open data and artificial intelligence (AI) with a focus on the impacts of aligning open data initiatives with artificial intelligence (AI), and the benefits and challenges of using applications such as Bloom, Stable Diffusion and CodeWhisperer: How will this impact the open data movement?
