Friday Focus: ChatGPT

View descriptionShare

Friday Focus provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving the news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates. 

The following is a sample of the Munk Debates’ weekly current affairs podcast, Friday Focus. 

On this week’s edition of the Friday Focus podcast, Janice and Rudyard go deep into the debut of the new machine learning tool ChatGPT, which is taking the internet by storm. How much of a game changer is ChatGPT when it comes to how we access the Internet’s treasure troves of information and use what we learn from querying ChatGPT when we communicate with one another? Janice and Rudyard explain why ChatGPT is indeed a very big deal in the annals of machine learning and why it may herald a new competitive advantage for open societies in their competition with authoritarian regimes.

Listeners interested in using ChatGPT should click on the link and look for the button “TRY CHATGPT” midway down the middle of the page.
