Oct 2019 – “Say what?” The Language Challenge in AI

Date & Time: Wednesday, 16th October, 7.30pm

Venue: Spazju Kreattiv, Studio B 

Could you be replaced by a computer who talks just like you? When we communicate, there is a lot more happening than the simple exchange of information. How do we convey an underlying meaning? How do we make sure the other person understands what we intend to say?

Dr Claudia Borg from the Department of Artificial Intelligence from the University of Malta will help us understand how we process language, and how Artificial Intelligence is trained to understand and use the nuances of human communication. We will also learn how intelligent software systems are learning how to deal with the Maltese language in particular.
