Should computing professionals fear Generative AI (GenAI) or embrace it? We know that GenAI will soon change the way we work. How can we harness these new AI tools to augment the work we do?

In this session, we will talk about how computing professionals, researchers, and educators can use GenAI effectively. We will discuss GenAI’s impact on jobs and explore how to future-proof ourselves. We will also look at how individuals and companies can build and use enterprise-grade GenAI tools.
