AI Texts: a Semiotic Perspective. International Online Conference

Date: 30.11.2023 - 01.12.2023
AI Texts: a Semiotic Perspective. International Online Conference

The JU Institute of Eastern Slavonic Studies will host an online conference entitled 'AI Texts: a Semiotic Perspective', which will be held on 30 November-1 December 2023. The conference will be devoted to the topic of linguistics and artificial intelligence.

30th November 2023 will mark one year since Open AI’s presentation of ChatGPT which has triggered an avalanche of events, provoking heated debates and extreme reactions. Representatives of hard and soft sciences as well as arts and humanities have also been formulating opinions on the increasingly expansive presence of AI in the human world. The organisers of the conference wish to contribute to this discussion by opening a research field focused on the analysis of texts produced by Artificial Intelligence. To explore this field fruitfully, they aim to establish a platform for sharing experiences and insights of researchers looking into the semiotic activity of human beings from diverse perspectives and employing various methods and approaches.

They understand semiotics broadly - regarding linguistics as its part but without restricting the notion of ‘text’ solely to structures based on verbal code. They view our humanities-oriented venture into the world of AI-generated texts as a form of research reconnaissance, which gives the conference formula an open character and allows us to reach out to a worldwide community of scholars. In order not to limit the scope of the discussion, we do not specify key issues or suggest thematic panels, which, we trust, will emerge after the acceptance of the submitted abstracts.

The organisers are convinced that the results of the proceedings of our humanities forum will contribute to addressing the challenge of the necessary reconceptualisation or redefinition of text as an object of semiotic research in view of AI’ activity in this domain. They also believe that they will prove applicable to transdisciplinary approaches to the phenomenon of Artificial Intelligence.
This is why there is a plan to disseminate them in a collective work to be published by an internationally renowned academic press (level II on the list of publishers of the Polish Ministry of Education and Science).
