Program: Emily Bender, University of Washington, “What Citizens Need to Know About Artificial Intelligence,” August 11, 2022

In this talk, Dr. Emily Bender will describe the ways in which so-called “AI” technology is over-sold and over-hyped, both by the companies (and sometimes academic researchers) creating it and journalists reporting on it.  She will illustrate how to tell when journalists aren’t asking the right questions and talk about the questions that she thinks we all should be asking instead.

Emily M. Bender is a Professor of Linguistics and Adjunct Professor in Computer Science and Engineering and the Information School at the University of Washington, where she has been on the faculty since 2003.  Her research includes multilingual grammar engineering, the interaction of linguistics and language technology, and how to incorporate considerations of societal impacts into the design of language technology.
