New innovations in large language modeling and other generative artificial intelligence tools, such as ChatGPT, have spurred debate about their capacities, risks, and broader societal implications. The Standing Committee on Advancing Science Communication is hosting a public webinar to explore the implications of these technologies for science communication. Expert panelists will discuss:
• What these technologies are, how they work, and how they may change the information landscape going forward;
• Potential positive innovations that generative AI could facilitate in science communication; and
• Systemic limitations and risks of generative AI, as well as the broad ethical and social implications of these technologies.
