Hybrid workshop on the philosophy of large language models (with a focus on communication and explainable AI). Hosted and sponsored by the Eindhoven Center for the Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence (@ephil.ai), the research consortium Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies (ESDIT), and the Philosophy and Ethics Group at Eindhoven University of Technology (@PhilEthicsTuE). The workshop is organized by Guido Löhr and Céline Budding.
In this workshop, we explore two aspects of the nature of large language models like LaMDA, GPT3 or PaLM. First, we will explore the question of what it can mean for these LLMs to make speech acts or to communicate with us. For example, what could it mean for a chatbot to make an assertion or make a demand? Second, we will discuss LLMs in relation to explainable AI. How can we make sense of the transformer models that make modern LLMs so successful?
The workshop is a hybrid event and open to anyone who is interested. If you are interested in attending online or in person, please email Guido Löhr and we will send you additional information.
Time is in Central European Time (CET).
