Bot Shop (Media Literacy Week Presentations)
October 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
BOT SHOP (MEDIA LITERACY WEEK PRESENTATIONS): Who said that?! With increase use of artificial intelligence (AI) and chatbots, sometimes the answer isn’t a “who,” but rather a “what”. Learn about the history of chatbots and representations of A.I. in popular cinema with WCSU Communications and Media Arts professor, Dr. Eric Stewart, at 2 p.m.. Stewart will also discuss the current use and future implications of non-human actors in Hollywood and video games. His 45-minute presentation will be followed by a hands-on workshop in developing chatbots to create an interactive scene based off main characters from original student scripts using the open source scripting language, RiveScript.
Join us at the Haas Library or online for this fascinating talk and workshop on artificial intelligence and chatbots in pop culture and their potential implications in real life.
