How ChatGPT and AI will revolutionise PR (Members Only)

April 4, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


April 4th @ 11.30am - 1.00pm


There is a lot of interest in ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence (AI) tools, and the impact they will have on a variety of sectors, including communications, media and content creation.

Join us for a learning lunch with Professor Bernhard Pfahringer co-director of Te Ipu o te Mahara AI Institute at the University of Waikato, to learn more about how AI will revolutionise all we do.

Find out how you can use AI tools like ChatGPT to support your work. What other AI tools are on the horizon, and how do they work? We will also have a discussion about the impact of these AI tools for our profession, and society. How do we navigate ethical concerns over creativity, integrity, plagiarism, fake news and more? 

This is a “brown bag” learning lunch so please BYO your own food (or grab something from one of the great cafes in the CBD) and join us at Panama House for an intimate lunch discussion, led by Bernhard and the PRINZ Waikato committee. 

Due to the small space, we are keeping this event for members only.

There will be an opportunity in the second half of the session to check out ChatGPT, have a play, ask questions, and discuss the pros and cons for our profession. Bring your laptop or device.

We’ll cover:

  • How has AI evolved over the past decade or two, and the important role New Zealand has played in this space.
  • How is AI going to revolutionise all we do (just like the Internet did)
  • ChatGPT: what is it, how does it work and how can you use it
  • What other AI tools are there (Bard, text-to-image AI) and what is coming next, including AI-generated video (and what are the pros and cons of each)
  • The benefits of AI tools for communications professionals, and ethical considerations
