You can’t throw a rock without hitting a new application of artificial intelligence these days.  But just what is artificial intelligence, and how might it help (or hinder) our work to improve population health? This month’s Hot Topics in Practice will provide some basics to help you think about this, as well as some hands-on examples with ChatGPT.

In this hour-long webinar, Abraham Flaxman, PhD, an Associate Professor of Health Metrics Sciences at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, will focus on generative artificial intelligence and the role it plays in enhancing or hindering the work to improve population health. He will include a live demonstration with tools such as ChatGPT.

Register today to learn more about the role of generative AI tools in addressing today’s public health challenges.
