[IN PERSON] Have Our Robot Overlords Arrived? Artificial Intelligence & ChatGPT's Implications for Business Employees

Ways of Working

Recent breakthroughs in Generative AI and Large Language Models may enable significant increases in productivity for white collar jobs that were previously immune to automation. The presentation will discuss how large language models are trained, how they work, the companies that are building ChatGPT capabilities into their products, legal challenges and the implications for this exciting new technology going forward.


  • ChatGPT 3.5 was trained on 3.4 billion web pages and has 175 billion parameters
  • ChatGPT 4.0 has an estimated 100 trillion parameters and runs on the 5th most powerful supercomputer
  • Large Language Models simply predict the next word in a sentence with a statistical model
  • This type of AI is a black box - and is incapable of explaining why it arrived at its results
  • Many companies have committed to building this technology into their products
  • This type of AI should boost productivity and be an aid, but will not likely displace humans entirely
