We will first hear about how a company is extracting data to manage their resources: people, equipment and systems. Thomas Urbye will share how his company uses ChatGPT to enhance productivity. This will include how to prompt ChatGPT to understand what you are trying to achieve in order to respond accurately.
Generative AI refers to an artificial intelligence system that is designed to create or generate new data, images, text, or other content that has not been explicitly programmed into the system. These systems use complex algorithms and deep learning techniques to learn patterns and generate new content based on that knowledge. Some examples of generative AI include image and video generation, text generation, and music composition. Generative AI technology is increasingly being used in creative industries such as advertising, entertainment, and design to generate new content and innovative ideas.
