Oct 16, 2023

Janette Roush, Executive Vice President, Marketing & Digital at New York City Tourism + Conventions, will speak on ChatGPT and how tourism professionals can utilize the technology at the 2024 NYS Tourism Conference. In this session, Janette will answer questions about ChatGPT (Is the technology sentient? Will my kids use it to cheat on term papers?), and speak on how tourism marketers can save time by using this technology today. 

Review use cases that have nothing to do with content creation – from creating rubrics to writing pivot tables, there are dozens of tasks that can be simplified thanks to the organizational powers of generative AI. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, you’ll be inspired to create your account or dive into an AI game plan for your organization after this session!

Why you should attend this session:

  • Demystify ChatGPT so you’re confident in testing use cases,
  • Become versed in how this technology works before it’s baked into every SAAS product and piece of software you use,
  • Learn what kind of tasks are best suited for testing with generative AI models,
  • Understand what to watch out for, whether data privacy, copyright limitations, or hallucinations.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn how large language models work (and don’t work!),
  • Discover how to craft an instruction to ChatGPT to get the output you want,
  • Be inspired by the possibilities for your own organization after seeing examples and case studies of how generative AI can be used!
