Natural and Artificial Intelligence; Natural and Artificial Language (Invited Talk)

OASIcs-SLATE-2021-1.pdf (0.5 MB)


This text starts by discussing what it means to be intelligent for humans and machines, what is the purpose of language, and how is human language fundamentally different from artificial languages. It presents the issue of values as one inescapable property of human language, and of human categorization in general, after reviewing five distinctive caracteristics of natural language. Then it proceeds to discuss static word embeddings, raising two questions: is the wisdom of the crowd an appropriate justification for using the underlying large text collections? And have the differences between languages been taken into account when intrinsically evaluating Portuguese word embeddings?
