Humanities in the Age of AI Lunch meeting

November 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Humanities 1, Room 210


The Humanities Institute Research cluster, “Humanities in the Age of AI,” is pleased to invite you to their second lunch meeting scheduled for November 6th (Monday) at noon in HUM 210. The research cluster boasts a diverse group of core participants. This includes six esteemed faculty members from various disciplines, graduate students representing politics, history, literature, philosophy, feminist studies, and film and visual studies, and undergraduate scholars from computer science, computational media, and creative writing.

From the Department of Politics, Professor Matt Sparke will be guiding a conversation on the intersection of AI-driven developments in global and community health, in conjunction with teaching collaborations here at UC Santa Cruz. In a similar vein, Jack Fox Keen, a 1st Year Ph.D candidate in Computer Science and Engineering, will be presenting their research on explainable AI, health care and natural language processing in application to suicide prevention.

We encourage you to bring your own lunch to this meeting as this is an uncatered event. Until then, please continue to check our website for more updates on the cluster’s upcoming projects and presenters.

For those who prefer to schedule in advance, please note the dates for our brown bag meetings throughout the academic year: 10/2 (lunch provided), 11/6, 12/11, 1/8 (lunch provided), 2/12 (featuring Davide Panagia), 3/4, 4/8 (lunch provided), and 5/6.
