The Simpson Center for the Humanities presents a cross-disciplinary series exploring humanistic approaches to AI and its impacts on historic and contemporary notions of human creativity as it pertains to writing, artistic creation, reading and interpretation, translation, as well as research. We plan a colloquium comprising a series of three invited speakers, as well as local events and hands-on workshops exploring a range of AI issues and tools, from AI-driven translation tools to large language models that help us query massive textual corpora.
This lecture features UW Linguistics professor Dr. Emily Bender, who specializes in research focused on the societal impacts of language technologies. Dr. Bender is also the director of the Computational Linguistics Laboratory and the faculty chair of UW’s Master’s program in Computational Linguistics.
When: Monday, Oct 16, 2023, 3:30 – 5 p.m.
Where: Communications Building (CMU) Room 202
This event is part of the AI, Creativity, and the Humanities project.
