October 26, 4:30-6:00 p.m.: Center for Digital Humanities, Princeton, Machine Predictions and Synthetic Text: A Roundtable. For this roundtable, two co-authors of "Stochastic Parrots" will speak with three leading digital humanities scholars about the implications of the article for humanities research employing NLP methods. Together, they will discuss how the authors’ attention to process (data gathering, documentation, standards) and ethics in AI can be turned to humanists creating data and models for the study of literature, history, and culture. Register for the Zoom webinar.
