AI and the Next Frontier of Higher Education: Access, Applications, Research, and Hallucinations

The release of ChatGPT by OpenAI and other AI (Artificial Intelligence) models has stirred up controversy and speculation about their role in higher education, bringing up age-old online education issues such as students cheating.  Rather than viewing AI as a threat to education, we need to understand the potential of AI and how we can harness it to support learning. This presentation will address some of the controversies and discuss how user-friendly AI models can provide access to learning and democratize knowledge in diverse sociocultural contexts.
