This is a flyer for a talk I will be giving at the University of Georgia and State University on February 28th.
Here’s the blurb for the talk:
Google provides 1 million results, but the ones paid for by advertisers are at the top. ChatGPT writes grammatically perfect and persuasive prose, but is prone to fabrication. Star Trek’s computer, on the other hand, returns terse answers that seem too concise to be useful, lacking nuance or complexity, but are generally reliable. It sounds less human (but at least it recognizes when the requested information isn’t there). Is this just another example of technology surpassing the imagination of Star Trek writers? Will Starship Enterprise’s computers outperform today’s computers? Join Newell Visiting Scholar Dr. James F. McGrath explores these strange new problems, tackling the intersection of ethics, modern computer science, and the speculative future of science fiction, while boldly tackling where humanities research is needed.
