André Aciman, Karl Bakeman and James Barrat with Maria Pallante: Artificial Intelligence: Friend or Foe?

Thu, Nov 9, 2023 at 6pm

This event has passed.

The artificial intelligence revolution is progressing at lightning speed, with significant implications for authors, translators and the publishing industry. Could AI result in the next recipient of the Nobel Prize turning out to be a robot, or will it usher in a new era of creativity?  Our panel of humans discuss the threats and opportunities: André Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name, typifies writers who are vulnerable to piracy and parody from ChatGPT; Karl Bakeman leads the AI advisory group at publisher W.W. Norton; James Barrat’s Our Final Invention highlighted concerns about AI as far back as 2013. This session will be moderated by Maria Pallante, President and C.E.O. Association of American Publishers.
