MIT Generative AI Week reflects our conviction that MIT has a special responsibility to help society come to grips with the tectonic forces of generative AI – to understand its potential, contain its risks, and harness its power for good. Our objective is to spotlight the insights of our MIT researchers, stimulate thoughtful analysis, and engage in critical dialogues on the implications and possibilities of generative AI in our ever-shifting landscape.
This week of events aligns with MIT's dedication to the wider emphasis across campus on generative AI and climate tech, as underscored in President Kornbluth's recent email.
MIT Generative AI Week will kick off with a flagship symposium, MIT Generative AI: Shaping the Future, on November 28, 2023. The program offers a full day featuring plenary sessions and keynotes delivered by MIT’s own Professor Rodney Brooks, who will illuminate the future horizon of where robotics and generative AI intersect, and renowned media artist and director Refik Anadol, who will discuss the interplay between generative AI and art, including approaches toward data sculpting and digital architecture in our physical world.
On November 29 - 30, four half-day, limited-capacity thematic symposia will delve into diverse applications of generative AI in areas including human and planetary health, creativity, business and finance, and education.
MIT Generative AI Week will be recorded and made available online after the event, however, the programs will not be webcast. We hope you will join us on campus for these sessions.
