This semester the focus at my MED 512 course is “Generative AI”

In Uncategorized on March 10, 2023 at 12:29

As I noted before, every semester, I choose a new topic to focus on in my Media Studies graduate-level course. It was Metaverse last year, and it will be the generative AI this year. We will be online again this semester, and I also started a Discord server for all my classes. If you like to join, you are welcome but use responsibly, or I will kick you out;)
