Generative AI is intersecting with higher education at FSU and changing the way we learn and work.
FSU ITS is drawing attention nationally for our work with artificial intelligence. To remain at the forefront of AI adoption, ITS continually assesses and releases new tools and features to the FSU community. Learn more about how AI is being used at Florida State and the tools currently available to our campus community.
Current AI Tools
Meet Ruby—an AI-driven chatbot connected to the university’s customer support system. Named after FSU alumna Ruby Diamond, Ruby greets everyone and collects information before connecting to live support.
Generative AI meets Microsoft Edge with Bing Chat Enterprise. This tool can help you quickly draft content, summarize documents, analyze data and much more.
Let Zoom AI take notes for you! ITS is piloting Zoom’s AI Companion service, which records and summarizes meeting transcripts into chapters and identifies action items assigned during the meeting.
Microsoft Viva at Florida State University brings together communications, insights, knowledge and learning in an integrated experience that empowers people and teams to be their best.
What is generative AI?
Generative AI refers to a class of artificial intelligence algorithms and models that are designed to generate new content similar to existing data it has been trained on. It is a bit like a creative friend who can come up with new ideas, even if they have never seen those exact ideas before!
How does generative AI work?
Generative AI is like a smart computer program that learns from a bunch of examples. It figures out the patterns in the examples and then uses that knowledge to create new content that looks similar.
How can I use generative AI?
Generative AI can be used in many ways to suit your interests and needs. Uses include art and creativity, content creation, image editing and creation, enhancing data and more.
