I'm Professor Toby Walsh, a leading artificial intelligence researcher investigating the impacts of AI on society. Ask me anything about AI, ChatGPT, technology and the future!
Hi Reddit, Prof Toby Walsh here, keen to chat all things artificial intelligence!
A bit about me - I’m a Laureate Fellow and Scientia Professor of AI here at UNSW. Through my research I’ve been working to build trustworthy AI and help governments develop good AI policy.
I’ve been an active voice in the campaign to ban lethal autonomous weapons which earned me an indefinite ban from Russia last year.
A topic I've been looking into recently is how AI tools like ChatGPT are going to impact education, and what we should be doing about it.
I’m jumping on this morning to chat all things AI, tech and the future! AMA!
EDIT: Wow! Thank you all so much for the fantastic questions, had no idea there would be this much interest!
I have to wrap up now but will jump back on tomorrow to answer a few extra questions.
