UPDATE: 9/11/23. We had a full house last night for the last Manly Talks of the year, which was a fun, lively and very informative talk by tech guru Mark Pesce. We got 'hands on' with three AI apps which harness the amazing powers of the new technology to write articles, draw images and much much more. As well, Mark walked us through the history of AI, its incredible rise to prominence over the last 12 months, and what to be wary of now.
Our new venue was Balgowlah Bowling and Community Club which gave us plenty of space, as well as access to finger-licking good dinners by Carly May, Tony and team.
We’ll be back with Manly Talks in February 2024 and we’re busy curating an exciting lineup of speakers to come and talk about the environment, arts, culture, business, transport and building a stronger community. Stay tuned for further announcements and come join the conversation! Even better - send us your own ideas for topics or speakers. Post your ideas here.
20/10/23. For our final Manly Talks of the year, we are delighted to introduce futurist, author and educator Mark Pesce to unpack the facts about Generative Artificial Intelligence.
AI, and particularly ChatGPT, has well and truly landed in our daily lives. But how does it work, and how can we get the most out of it? And what about the risks? Mark is a leading technology commentator and has written ten books, including "Getting Started with ChatGPT and AI Chatbots", which is due for release in December.
In this essential Manly Talks event Mark will demystify AI and make it accessible, empowering and fun.
Balgowlah Bowling Club on Wed Nov 8, 6-7.30pm
Drinks and dinner available during the talk or join us to eat afterwards.
Tickets $10.00. Available here
