Exploring the Gen AI Fire

Workshop overview

Discover the transformative yet contentious realm of generative AI (Gen AI) in this 90 minute immersive workshop. Like Prometheus stealing fire from the gods, Gen AI offers us a tool of incomprehensible power and potential. But how should we handle this fire? Should we let it burn wildly, use it sparingly, or douse it entirely?

Guided by the metaphorical story of fire, we take you on a philosophical and practical journey to explore how to respond to and steward this potent technology responsibly. We navigate the spectrum of innovation and caution, teaching you to be a responsible firekeeper of the Gen AI flame.



The aim of this workshop is to challenge your gut reaction to Gen AI by exploring different responses and perspectives.

Using the metaphor of fire, you will not only explore the technological promises and pitfalls, but also gain clarity on where you stand when it comes to responsible development and use.
