OTHER PROJECTS-AI &MULTILINGUALISM

AI & Multilingualism

We have been investigating the benefits and challenges of AI on multilingualism on the Internet, experimenting with ChatGPT.

Two experiments were conducted, the first one focused the ethical concern of AI hallucinations in the context of false bibliographical references and the second one focused the impressive capacities of ChatGPT for multilingualism, furthermore we contribute to Elon University report on The Impact of Artificial Intelligence by 2040:

  • ChatGPT: from Artificial Wisdom to a serious ethical problem with bibliographical data
  • “Comment ChatGPT traite le multilinguisme: entre émerveillements et hallucinations”, Table Ronde Â« Intelligence Artificielle (IA), langues, traduction automatique et représentation des connaissances Â»  dans la Journée d’études en communication internationale et interculturelle  sur le thème : « Regards croisés sur la Communication internationale et interculturelle à l’heure de la renégociation des pouvoirs Â», Université du Québec à Montréal, 28 avril 2023. Vidéo (12mn.), PPTDOC
  • ICV Symposium AI and Citizenship with a conference “AI & Multilingualism: between dream and nightmare“. Video (10 mn, in French), PPT (in French)
  • Contribution to Elon University report on The Impact of Artificial Intelligence by 2040 focusing in particular “multilingualism assisted by IA powered translation tools as lingua franca of the Internet“.

The relation between AI (Artificial Itelligence) and IL (Information Literacy) has been also analyzed:

Indicators for the Presence of Languages in the Internet

In 2017, we devised a new approach that could help to better follow the progress and prevalence of languages online. Using this approach, we were able to identify meaningful indicators outlining the presence of 343 languages on the Internet.
