Moral Imagineering with ChatGPT

Workshop overview

Everyone is chasing productivity hacks with ChatGPT, but not you. You’re curious – curious to explore what interacting with ChatGPT can teach you about the complexities and nuances of human existence. What if custom instructions could act like incantations, breathing life into your dialogues with ChatGPT, similar to the way rabbis breathed life into the golem?

In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll guide you on a journey beyond mere productivity. Discover how personalising your interactions with ChatGPT can open doors to self-discovery, deepen your perception on the uniqueness of being human, and enhance ethical awareness.



The aim of this workshop is to broaden your view of ChatGPT from merely a productivity tool to a complex interface with the potential to challenge and enrich your understanding of self and society.

Drawing inspiration from the golem story, you’ll learn to see the dialogues you have with ChatGPT not just as transactional exchanges, but as opportunities for self-discovery, ethical engagement, and personal growth. By customising these interactions, you’ll become an active participant in shaping technology in ways that are reflective and respectful of your unique human experiences.

Who's this for?

Much like the rabbis in the age-old golem legend, are you a creator at the intersection of tech and ethics? Are you wrestling with the duality of your creations, striving to make them both powerful and benign? Then this workshop is for you.

We’ve designed this workshop for tech professionals, product managers, UX/UI designers, developers, and ethical tech advocates who are concerned with the moral imperatives of their work. But it’s also a fit for educators, policy makers, ethicists, and anyone captivated by the tension of creation and responsibility in the digital age.
