Generative AI Innovation Incubator

Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science (SCS) is announcing the creation of the Generative AI Innovation Incubator to cut through the multiple, perplexing and often conflicting stories about generative AI and help members of the public better benefit from the technology and identify its risks.

Led by faculty throughout SCS, this series of summer events designed with insights from the learning sciences and human-computer interaction will unite people of all skill sets and experience — from experts in large language models to AI-curious community members — to shape the future of generative AI. The incubator will feature guest lectures, instruction, hands-on group projects and community engagement sessions.

"The Generative AI Innovation Incubator will not only provide instruction, practice and mentored group projects, but it will also host community engagement sessions with facilitated presentations and discussion about societal issues," said Carolyn Rosé, interim director of the Language Technologies Institute and a professor of language technologies and human-computer interaction. "The goal is to shape the direction of continued work on AI toward positive societal ends."

Experts in large language models; software design; and fairness, accountability, transparency and ethics (FATE) in AI will lead sessions aimed at increasing the understanding and application of generative AI in daily life.

The events will take place June through August on CMU's campus in Pittsburgh and virtually when applicable. Registration is open, and everyone is invited to apply.
