Join us for an invited talk by Jan Pichl, CTO at PromethistAI. The lecture titled ChatGPT and the Future of Conversational Technologies: Advancements, Implications, and Challenges is organized by the IDA research group and UPE. It takes place on April 13, 2023 at 16:00 in room KN:E-301 on the FEE CTU campus at Charles Square.
In recent years, Natural Language Processing (NLP) research has seen a significant shift in focus, largely due to the emergence of large language models such as ChatGPT. These models have the potential to revolutionize the way businesses interact with their customers and transform the entire field of conversational technologies. This presentation will discuss how ChatGPT is changing the landscape of NLP research and explore the implications of this for businesses looking to leverage NLP and conversational technologies. We will examine the recent advances in language modeling and conversational AI and consider the challenges that still need to be addressed.
