Introduction to GenAI

Exploring Opportunities and Applications in Manufacturing & Business Operations

Generative AI (GenAI) is revolutionizing manufacturing, much like how electricity transformed industries in the early 20th century. Using this advanced technology is like having a super-smart helper who can understand what you need and take care of tasks for you. With GenAI, manufacturers can work smarter, not harder, making processes smoother and more efficient.

As with any new technology, responsible adoption requires a gradual approach – starting small to understand its potential and risks. This workshop is the first in a series designed to build a practical understanding of GenAI through hands-on experiences tailored to the manufacturing industry.

The training will take place over 2 half-day sessions and will include hands-on activities to reinforce the participants’ learning.

Session 1: June 14, 2024 | 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM ET

  • Understanding AI Chatbots: Explore tools like ChatGPT, Claude, Gemini, Perplexity, and Copilot. Learn essential prompting techniques to improve AI interactions.
