The Rhetorics of Artificial Intelligence: A Symposium

The Rhetorics of Artificial Intelligence is a one-day symposium designed to explore the rhetoric of public discourses surrounding AI, and whether AI recognises and can employ rhetoric, broadly conceived. What do our ongoing conversations concerning AI reveal about larger social and political anxieties and phenomena? To what extent and in what ways will AI technologies transform language and meaning making in the world? Will AI ever emulate human modes of rhetorical interaction? As AI becomes a ubiquitous aspect of our everyday experience, such questions become more urgent and necessary. Join us to hear what members from Young & Resilient have to say.
