Generative machine learning algorithms have recently captured the public imagination, with platforms like Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, and ChatGPT creating art, music, and essays in response to relatively basic prompts.

In this session, we will explore the emerging phenomenon of generative artificial intelligence and ask how it might impact anyone working in higher education.
