Collaborating with faculty, departments and centers from across the university, as well as colleagues at other institutions, the Center for the Humanities sponsors a lively events program on a wide range of topics. Please see the calendar below for information on forthcoming events. 

Signs of Artificial Life Symposium

Every day seems to bring a new headline about a breakthrough in artificial intelligence, raising questions about human language and its relationship to conceptual thinking as a core human capacity. This event brings together two luminaries in the study of signs and the cognitive features of language-making, putting two major frameworks for the study of AI into direct conversation. Separate talks from each speaker’s recent research will prepare for a live conversation about semiotics, cognition, and AI.

This is a multi-day, hybrid event: more info.
