iSchool Professor Joins AI Debate at FSU

School of Information Professor Paul Marty participated in a debate on campus centered around the impact of AI on universities. 

The debate, titled “Artificial Intelligence and The Academy: How will AI Impact Universities?”, was coordinated by FSU’s Office of Public Policy Events and was open to the public. Panelists included Marty, Jonathan Fozard (Chief Information Officer, FSU Information Technology Services), and Fengfeng Ke (Professor, FSU College of Education). 

Dr. Paul Marty presents to faculty on the uses of ChatGPT in the classroom.

In the debate, panelists discussed how students can use AI in teaching and learning, how AI can help faculty and staff in their university work, how everyone can use AI effectively and ethically, and how universities can best prepare students for the future of work where AI will be everywhere. 

“It was really an excellent evening, and I was delighted to be asked to participate in the debate!” said Marty. 

Marty plans to continue teaching the FSU community about AI and its uses in an upcoming series of workshops for faculty. 

“The goal of these workshops will be to provide an introduction to ChatGPT for FSU faculty, covering what Generative AI is all about, the sorts of things that ChatGPT can generate, how to refine your prompts to get better results from ChatGPT, and how faculty can use ChatGPT as a tool for writing, editing, brainstorming, and more as part of their research and teaching,” Marty explained.
