The release of ChatGPT in late 2022 rocked higher education, opening up significant questions about teaching, learning, and research. While early discussions revolved around academic integrity, universities have begun to shift their attention to the role of generative AI in the research enterprise. Join Constellate for this 90-minute panel discussion on the future of higher education and text analysis<https://constellate.org/events/large-language-models-and-higher-education> on October 10 at 1 pm Eastern with experts Susan D'Agostino and William Mattingly.
