LANDS Symposium: “GenAI, Language, and Society”
Thu 16th May 2024 9:00AM, University of Liverpool

Generative AI is having a significant impact on language and communication practices across all domains. From education to business and journalism, the use of large language model tools to generate texts (such as GPT or Gemini) is creating opportunities and risks at societal level. Through this one-day meeting, LANDS would like to explore and discuss current issues and challenges regarding the uses of Generative AI in contexts of linguistic production, their academic study and their professional implications.
