Room: 3105
robot and books

Intelligence, neural networks, natural-language parsers, and massive online corpora of texts are changing the face of research into language. How will these tools affect the questions we ask about literary language? And will accelerating interest in AI draw readers from the sensuous, aesthetic, localized, physical world of books?

Tuesday, October 2nd 2:30-3:30 PM in University College Room 3105 Reception to follow in Jim Good Room
