In the Machine Learning video, Hilary Mason discusses the potential impact of AI across various sectors, emphasizing the importance of transparency, fairness, and thoughtful use of these technologies. Generative AI, which represents the next level of machine learning, is much more advanced and requires greater awareness of both its capabilities and the ethical considerations surrounding its usage.1
As a student contemplating whether or not to use generative AI tools for academic tasks, it's essential to be mindful of both the potential and limitations of GenAI. This includes understanding its susceptibility to bias and the potential for errors in its outputs.
