Motivation and Rationale:

ChatGPT is here to stay and major tech companies have made significant investment in it. However, it is natural to expect many variations of ChatGPT type concepts will emerge due to its versatility and ease with which information is aggregated. Therefore, it is timely to discuss the applications of ChatGPT for the benefit of the end user community. Hence, this workshop is an opportune moment to generate serious discussions so that conference audiences could understand the direction of ChatGPT. 

Abstract: 

ChatGPT has gained serious attention recently and has generated many discussions in the news and social media as to its applications. In the academic circles, ChatGPT is discussed in regard to academic integrity, developing content for courses, developing assessment tasks and framing policies. Many secondary and tertiary institutions are seriously looking into a policy framework to accommodate ChatGPT related issues. Similarly in the health context, ChatGPT is used in many applications including producing referral type of letters. In the business contexts, ChatGPT has raised interest as to how business processes could be modelled. 

What appears to be emerging is that ChatGPT has spanned a number of domains and each stakeholder is seeing the applications that are suited to their own domains. While the underlying technical domain is not new, namely aggregating available information using a natural language type of query, the availability of information, amassed over a period of years, has enabled ChatGPT to produce information aggregation that goes beyond the current search engines. This has generated tremendous interest among users as they are able to see useful applications of ChatGPT for their own use.

This has generated tremendous interest among users as they are able to see useful applications of ChatGPT for their own use.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

  1. Natural Language Processing augmentation for ChatGPT: What is the future?
  2. The drivers and Barriers of ChatGPT for Education
  3. How can businesses improve their performances through ChatGPT
  4. Empowering marketing content using ChatGPT for business development
  5. Magic of multi-translation using ChatGPT
  6. New Risks ChatGPT Poses to Cybersecurity and social intelligence
  7. Regulatory Frameworks required to maintain a healthy growth of ChatGPT
  8. How to protect IP and Copyright as a result of ChatGPT application?
  9. Would Business Applications such as the FinTech benefit by ChaptGPT? If so, where and how?

Format

The papers must be submitted electronically via Cyberchair in standard IEEE Conference Proceedings format (max 8 pages)

We invite proposals that are discussion papers, research in progress, case studies, reviews, commentaries and technical papers.

The proposed workshop will have the following potential contributions to WI-IAT:

These ChatGPT-based topics are expected to attract interesting and diverse discussions that are timely and urgently needed for researchers to understand its technical development and business applications so that the academic, research and the business community can bring together their collective views to the conference audiences.  

Workshop/special session format planned (keynote, expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, etc.)

We expect that the number of accepted contributions will be limited to no more than 12. It will be half day workshop. Depending on the number of accepted papers the workshop schedule could be organized as follows.

Organising Committee:

The organising committee will consist of both academic researchers and practitioners so that the nexus between academic and industry could be assured. Similarly, we are endeavouring to source presentations from both academic and businesses to generate robust conversations.

Professor Revathi Venkataraman, India

Professor Vadivu, India

Professor N M Bhatta, India

Mr Suresh Reddy, GE, India

Mr.Jagatheeswaran Senthilvelan, ProtoHubs, India
