March 3rd. 11am: Andij Rusyn on leveraging large language models (like Chat GPT3) in business applications and beyond
Andriy is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill who majored in Computer Science and minored in Entrepreneurship and German (though he almost went for a linguistics minor as well). After graduating, he worked as a Consultant designing and building business software. The startup world pulled him back, and he ended up working as the Director of Product for Eight Sleep (a Series C startup that raised $150m). He left 6 months ago to pursue his vision of building an AI assistant that helps people reach their goals and is now building HabitCoach.ai.
The talk will focus on the power of large language models and how students can prepare for a world where AI can do pretty much everything. It won’t be super technical, but will mostly focus on describing where we are now, a little bit of how we got here, and a fair amount of where we might go next.
