AI Essentials at UCSD: Module 2 - TritonGPT

This course provides foundational thinking when applying Language Based AI tools to processes, and serves as an interactive introduction to TritonGPT.  This content is only available to UCSD staff.  We strongly recommend that you only take this course once you have access to TritonGPT, so you can try out examples in the tool as you learn.

The content for both formats will be identical - so there is no need to register for both.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I get access to TritonGPT?  
A. We are currently rolling out access to faculty and staff in phases. Each phase invites approximately 1,000 additional users to test out TritonGPT.  You will receive an email with a login link inviting you to access TritonGPT.  We anticipate all users will be loaded by the end of Spring 2024. 
 
Q. Will UC San Diego students have access to TritonGPT?  
A. We recognize that the TritonGPT Initiative has sparked interest and queries among our student body, who are eager to explore and utilize TritonGPT. We are actively working on plans to expand access to students in a manner that supports your academic endeavors while safeguarding the integrity of our digital infrastructure. While we cannot provide a specific timeline at this moment, please know that extending access to our student community is a priority for us, and we will keep you updated on our progress. 
 
Q. Will UCSD Health staff have access to TritonGPT? 
A. Access to TritonGPT is currently limited to faculty and staff within UCSD Campus and Health Sciences. For UCSD Health staff, your UCSD Health leadership team is exploring alternative ways to support your work with equivalent tools that meet UCSD’s rigorous standards for data protection and privacy as they relate to health-centric requirements, such as HIPAA. 
 
Q. Where is TritonGPT hosted?  
A. TritonGPT is hosted on-premises in the San Diego Supercomputer Center, ensuring that our data is secure and controlled.   
 
Q. Is the model trained or affected by my queries or other information I enter?  
A. The information you place in your prompts will not affect the model. General users will not be able to access the information you enter. If you provide “thumbs” feedback, ITS can use that information to improve future responses. 
 
Q. I have an idea for a new AI assistant. How can I get my assistant developed?  
A. The AI in Administration Workgroup can review and prioritize your request in collaboration with our development team. Review the workgroup information and contact the person who is most aligned with your work area.
