The exponential development of Generative AI technology over the past year, has brought about a lot of questions about the impact of this new technology and how to prepare for it. This training session is focused on helping progressive organizers at non-profits and campaigns navigate these questions and better understand how they can use these technologies to their advantage.

More specifically the training will focus on:

  • How do you properly evaluate an AI-powered tool for a specific use case in politics & campaigns?
  • What are the best practices of integrating AI in your digital organizing workflow
  • How can you develop efficient prompts for a large generalist AI model (e.g. ChatGPT, StableDiffusion, DALL E-2)?
