ESA wishes to invite Professional Members of the ESA to meet with Professor Joshua Gans to talk about

"ChatGPT and other AI: whose job is it coming for?" 

as part of the national ESA Eminent Speakers series 2023. 

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to develop, there is growing concern over its potential to replace workers. This talk will explore the role of AI in the workplace, specifically focusing on the rise of chatbots and conversational agents like ChatGPT. Professor Gans will examine the current state of AI technology and its potential to disrupt various industries and job sectors, and how policymakers can prepare for the upcoming disruption and the opportunities created.
