Will we all speak just one language in the future? Will that one language co-exist with thousands of local languages? Or will it be the only language we know?
Or will we understand each other because we have AI devices, either external or internal, that can translate anything? Will that revolutionize the world? Suddenly you can have a deep discussion about Shakespeare with your Iranian neighbour or watch a football game with your Norwegian friends. People will even be able to invent their own languages. Will this AI bring peace to the world or will it bring more problems? What happens if the AI devices suddenly stop working? Babel AI?
Come to GeekSpeak at noon SLT on Saturday to discuss the world of words. Bring a dictionary and your friends!
IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.
