Resources from AI Basics for Extension!

In this special session for Extension Professionals, we delved into the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its potential applications in Extension work. It was a valuable opportunity to explore AI's potential with our colleagues and the information caters to individuals at all levels of familiarity with AI.

During the webinar,  we discussed what AI is and how it works, examples of how AI can be used in Extension, and provided guidance on creating effective prompts. There was also demonstrated a number of different tools and an extended Q&A discussion around a variety of AI-related topics.
