3.15 Ethics & GenAI for SBC/C:
This is an emerging space. We will share a rapid review on the use Generative AI for SBC/C and emerging good practices. The session will build on this to identify emerging good practices and to inform a research agenda on SBC/C and GenAI which will be shared with funders (including the Bill & Melinda Gates Fdn) and the wider SBC/C field.
Participants will gain knowledge about the difference between predictive/traditional and GenAI, the multiple potential uses and challenges of GenAI within SBC/C. They will firm up their thinking on if/how GenAI should be used in their own SBC/C work.
