New initiative will enhance research connected to the growing use of artificial intelligence
Vanderbilt University has created the Future of Learning and Generative AI Initiative and appointed members of an advisory board for the initiative. Both will center their efforts around scholarship and opportunities connected to the growing use of nascent artificial intelligence technologies.
As generative AI grows and evolves, so do its uses and best practices. The purpose of the initiative is to take the opportunity to explore them and to train Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff to leverage the best of this cutting-edge technology.
In addition, the initiative will capture and harness the leading scholarship and expertise of Vanderbilt’s data scientists to develop education for faculty and students, seed trans-institutional innovation and inform and engage the data science community. The initiative was commissioned by the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Innovation.
“The introduction of this initiative and advisory board presents a tremendous opportunity for us to contribute to both research and teaching in higher education, positioning us at the forefront of this rapidly emerging cutting-edge technology,” Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs C. Cybele Raver said.
The initiative is being led by Jules White, associate dean for strategic learning programs and associate professor of computer science in the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering.
