Dr. Saša Mladenović, a professor at the Faculty of Science in Split, leads the Artificial Intelligence Research Group. Their research focuses on understanding intelligent behavior in biological and artificial systems during problem-solving and learning. They explore the foundations of human learning and reasoning, combining computer simulations and behavioral experiments to uncover the logic behind everyday cognitive processes, including sensory representation, concept learning, similarity-based reasoning, concept relations, and decision-making during problem-solving.
Their research employs various scientific methods, involving the evaluation of adults, children, and machines. The goal of their research is to better understand human learning in computational terms and apply these findings in the design and construction of artificial intelligence systems based on human learning models.”
ChatGPT-Based Tools in Learning and Teaching
With the growing popularity of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and engineering, there is an increasing need to adopt new methods, techniques, and knowledge that can be used in various fields. This presents a unique challenge to all participants in formal education who must decide how to treat tools that significantly change the traditional way of learning and working. Even those who have completed their formal education are not immune to the changes brought about by artificial intelligence techniques.
How can we cope with ChatGPT-based tools? How can we use these tools for learning and in our professional endeavors? What are the initial indicators globally and locally? Is it ethical to use AI-based tools for tasks such as programming? We will attempt to address these and other questions through this lecture.
