Language Games
Leonardo Electronic Almanac, Volume 23 Issue 1

Description: The goal of this issue is to bring together a range of perspectives — including those from philosophy, linguistics, computer sciences, digital humanities, and the creative arts — in order to examine the particular role of language in creating the interface between humans and AI/machine learning technologies. It will address languages’ role in getting us to accept these technologies, investigating how the creation of believable/convincing linguistic parallels to human forms of language (via mimicry), invites us to engage with machines as social beings, and builds trust in machine utterances (written and spoken).
