Lisa Miracchi Titus: “What Do Deep Learning Language Models Understand?”

Oct 5, 5:00 p.m.

Rockefeller Hall 200

Deep Learning Language Models, such as GPT3 and LaMDA, are increasingly touted as potentially shedding light on human language understanding and capacities for inference. Moreover, people both inside and outside the engineering world are raising concerns that these systems may even have become capable of understanding and communicating meaningfully themselves. In this talk, Lisa Miracchi Titus of the University of Denver will argue that we are still a long way away from developing AI systems that have these properties.

This talk is part of the Philosopher’s Holiday Lecture Series.
