Event Details

With ChatGPT exploding onto the scene, our children's future employment prospects (and current educational experience, with ChatGPT-powered cheating) are in existential danger. Game theory, however, may help devise solutions in which problems solve themselves even through self-serving human behavior. Join renowned math professor, researcher, and educator Po-Shen Loh for a deep dive into his recent invention of a new scalable ecosystem to build relevant skills to survive this new era of Generative AI.

The talk will take a deep dive into ChatGPT, using the latest version of ChatGPT to solve ever-harder, ever-more-real-world example problems, followed by a discussion on strategies for maintaining human competitiveness over AI. Finally, the speaker will conclude by explaining his latest work, which uses game theory to solve a new kind of education at scale: teaching people how to invent their own ways to solve problems instead of following learned methods. Such intellectual creativity is now essential for survival. The heart of his new solution brings together math experts and professionally trained comedians and actresses, whereby the professional entertainers teach the mathematicians how to be brilliant communicators, while they practice by teaching students how to think.
