NEaT would like to welcome you to a special online English as a Lingua Nordica mini presentation on Tuesday, January 23 at 5 pm Helsinki time (4 pm CET) on Zoom. If we are going to take these new tools into our own work, we have to know what they do and how they work. Then you start to understand how they might fit into your own tasks. If you have questions or even concerns about large language models, ChatGPT and other AI, and how they work, this is the session for you. The session is free to members, ten euros for non-members, to be paid to BIC NDEAFIHH, IBAN FI48 1237 3000 1522 20.
