Overview

Welcome to Wiley Humanities Festival!
As the world becomes increasingly reliant on the work of artificial intelligence, machines, and automated learning, where does that leave the Humanities? 
How can we use these technological tools to inform Humanities research without compromising the necessary human contributions to these fields? 
Our web panel will focus on three primary areas within this broader question:
What field of humanities would most benefit from AI algorithms? 
Can machines extract meaning from texts better than humans? 
And as AI starts interpreting text/data, what ethical concerns does it raise? 
Chaired by Kate McKellar, Senior Publishing Manager for Humanities journals at Wiley, we will be joined by Dr Patricia Murrieta-Flores, Professor Melissa Terras and Raymond Abruzzi.
