Winning Universal Health Care through Artificial Intelligence

grid_0.pngYou may have heard about ChatGPT in the news lately, one of the latest developments in using artificial intelligence (AI) and language models to generate new content (both text and images) and assimilate knowledge in novel ways.

But how can AI help us win universal health care?  The HCAC Communications Committee is looking for people interested in leveraging the latest powerful information technology to help us drive past the tipping point.

We will start off with a brainstorming/roundtable session, demonstrating several examples of the capabilities of AI and suggestions on how to use it effectively.

No experience is necessary, but creativity and a lack of fear of new technology are highly encouraged.  If you can write a sentence, you can interact with ChatGPT. No specialized technology skills are required.

Interested?  Register for the HCAC AI Zoom session on Saturday 4/15 here.  If you cannot make that event, register anyway so that we can send you updates on future activities.
