WACC to launch webinar series about ethical use of AI

WACC is launching the webinar series “AI, You, and Your Organization” on 23 January to offer social justice advocates an ethics-based approach to the use of artificial intelligence.

“Artificial intelligence has been headline news since the launch of ChatGPT over a year ago, with many claiming that it can save you time and money,” notes WACC Deputy General Secretary Sara Speicher, who is coordinating the new e-learning opportunity.

But AI also brings questions with it, especially for communication rights advocates, she notes. “How do we use AI ethically? And how do we avoid costly mistakes?”

WACC designed “AI, You, and Your Organization” together with AI expert Dr Erin Green, owner of The Joyful Bot, to bridge this knowledge gap.

The three-part, English-language webinar series is tailored for individuals and organizations wanting to better understand artificial intelligence and how it should – or should not – be used in our personal and professional lives today.

Webinar 1 | AI Fundamentals
Tuesday, 23 January 2024
9am or 4pm CET (Brussels)

Webinar 2 | Harnessing the Power of Generative AI for Communication

Webinar 3 | Navigating the World of Generative AI: Guidelines for Your Organisation

9am or 4pm CET (Brussels)

The hour-long webinars will feature an expert presentation and time for discussion, with an opportunity to link to experts following the session. Each webinar will be held twice on the same day to allow for greater participation from the different WACC regions.

Course fees are US$9 per webinar and US$25 for all three webinars. WACC members receive a discount of a third off the regular course fees.

Space is limited. To register for “AI, You, and Your Organization,” contact WACC and indicate which webinar sessions (date and time) you’d like to attend.

“AI, You, and Your Organization: Understanding and working ethically with artificial intelligence” is a collaboration between WACC and Dr Erin Green (The Joyful Bot), with support from the Association of Protestant Churches and Missions in Germany (EMW).
