Working With Machines
When: Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Where: Online zoom
Please watch the online discussion of the Living With Machines project at the Alan Turing Institute. How do we train machines to “read” maps? What is the pre-history of AI and how can we explore this through texts and the language of mechanisation? And what are the ethical and philosophical questions raised at the human-machine interface: are we just feeding machines our own biases as we “train” up living machines? How will we continue to work with machines in the future as AI advances?
About the project
The Alan Turing Institute and the British Library, together with researchers from a range of universities, including Queen Mary, have been awarded £9.2 million from the UKRI's Strategic Priorities Fund for a major new project.
Led by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), ‘Living with Machines’ will take place over five years and is set to be one of the biggest and most ambitious humanities and science research initiatives ever to launch in the UK.
