Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence: How to Use AI in Knowledge Work - Workshop

Utilize AI as part of your daily work

Artificial Intelligence is a technological revolution equivalent to the internet and smartphones. It has already irreversibly changed the way we work. At the same time, there are also greatly exaggerated expectations and unrealistic hype associated with AI. 

In the Human-centered AI workshop, you will learn what AI really is and how it can be used in knowledge work, how AI can change how we work, what limitations AI has, and where it should not be used. Additionally, you will learn to use various AI methods, such as text production and evaluation, image and sound production, information retrieval, summarization, clarification, and input formatting. The training also delves into AI source criticism, ethics, and evaluation. 

The AI platforms used in the workshop are ChatGPT, Dreamstudio, MidJourney, Soundful, Runway ML and Eleven Labs.

Now, more than ever, is the time to familiarize yourself with the AI tools for knowledge workers, with which you can enhance your daily work!

The workshop is led by Lauri Järvilehto, PhD, Professor of Practice at Aalto University.
