The New York Times called Thomas Smith a "veteran programmer." For over a decade, Smith has led Gado Images, an AI-driven visual content company.

The field of generative AI is moving so quickly, it’s often hard to keep up. ChatGPT launches, and days later it’s the fastest-growing app in history. Google makes moves to ban AI content and then suddenly pivots to encouraging it–and trying to compete to create it.

And as a backdrop, there’s the nagging question, “How much of this is even legal?”, with class action and other litigation challenging the basic pillars of many large AI systems.

Within that environment, it’s crucial to get insights from key industry technical, legal and business experts. That’s why I’m thrilled to be moderating Generative AI; Separating Fact from Fiction, a webinar on generative AI for the Digital Media Licensing Association, on February 17, 2023 at 1pm EST.

The webinar is free for DMLA members, and $59.99 for non-members.
