How Intelligent Is Artificial Intelligence: The Role of Human Intelligence in AI Translation

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes increasingly more intelligent, its application in the field of translation is becoming more and more inescapable. Dr. George Henson explores how much of a threat AI is to human translators and, more importantly, what role the human translator will play in the future of the translation industry.

The Silver Bullet Is on Your Plate

Dr. Jason Scorse, chair of the International Environmental Policy program, discusses how our food system and your individual dietary choices have significant impacts on the environment.

Systemic Racism and the Process of Decolonization

In a world where we have become more aware of systemic racism, it is important to do an analysis of the root causes of this issue. Dr. Pushpa Iyer argues that white supremacy, as in power in whiteness, is a product of colonization, and in order to create more equity in the world, we need to engage in the process of decolonization. This discussion explores how to decolonize cognitively, emotionally, socially, culturally, and politically.
