Session 4: To Speak of Gods and Monsters: Critical Engagement with AI in the Liberal Arts

Join us for an enlightening session hosted by Jenna Nolt, Digital Initiatives Librarian at Kenyon College, alongside two dedicated student researchers – Tasnim Orco ‘26 (Chemistry) and Sydney Thaler ‘24 (History) – delving into the intricate world of Artificial Intelligence. This workshop promises to explore the multifaceted challenges and ethical considerations inherent in AI development, with a particular focus on the nuanced role AI plays within the liberal arts context.

Our discussion will critically engage with key issues such as data accuracy, bias, and the ethics of data collection, examining how these factors influence AI's impact on intellectual development. Moreover, the session will feature insights from a year-long data collection project conducted by our student researchers, offering a unique perspective on the practicalities of AI research.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in this fourth installment in the OH5 virtual lunchtime series, contributing their insights and experiences to a rich dialogue on how we can navigate the complexities of AI together in an academic setting. Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of AI and its implications for the future of education and research.  The Zoom meeting link will be shared upon completion of our online registration form.   Registration is complimentary for OH5 colleagues.
