Team Synergy and Team Konfabulate collaborated to organize the KDS program for MBA and BBA students. The event featured a panel discussion on two topics: “Pros and Cons of ChatGPT? Will it assist humans or replace humans?” and “Money is not the major source of motivation in the workplace.” After auditions, 8 students were selected out of 15+ registrations to present on the day of KDS. The first panel shared diverse opinions on the Pros and Cons of ChatGPT, discussing its impact on daily life and more. The second panel talked about how money is not the sole motivator in the workplace, highlighting other factors at play. The event took place in an auditorium with an audience of 90+ and the panel discussion was insightful.
