Workshop 5: “Creating your story with ChatGPT: what to ask the AI and how to ask it?”

Description

In this workshop, we will discover how one of the latest and most powerful “large language models” – ChatGPT – can create short stories. You will choose the theme, elements and style of these stories, and we will experiment with increasingly sophisticated requests to get better and more specific outputs. We will assess what ChatGPT can come up with, discuss its limits, and reflect more broadly upon the meaning of literary creativity.

How can centuries-old tradition and new technology come together to enable new art forms?
