Presentation: AI Writing for Newbies

Cyborg Leo waves in a slide titled "AI Writing for Newbies."

This morning I had the pleasure of giving a talk on AI to a group of high school students at Iona Preparatory School, in NYC, courtesy of an invitation from Mr. Heri Albertorio, a former student and graduate student of mine from UPRM.

Here’s a link to the talk, which might be of interest as an general introduction to AI and writing, focused on high school students.
