The Canisius community is invited to sit in on what is sure to be an engaging and thought-provoking talk, titled “Can Generative AI Solve My Math Homework.” The event is set for Friday, September 8, from 2:10 – 3:10 p.m. in Science Hall, Room 1053.
The discussion will delve into the realm of generative AI and its potential to tackle one of the most common challenges students face: math homework. With the advent of powerful AI models like GPT-3.5, we explore the capabilities and limitations of AI in assisting with mathematical problem-solving tasks.
The presentation begins by introducing the audience to the concept of generative AI, showcasing its remarkable ability to understand and generate human-like text. We then embark on a journey through the world of mathematics, highlighting the diversity of problems students encounter in their homework assignments, from basic arithmetic to advanced calculus.
The talk is presented at the Engineering and Physics Seminar.
