Dr. Justus and Dr. DiMauro will make use of textual generation software powered by artificial intelligence from With Generative Pre-trained Transformer Three (GPT-3) we will amend and repair an ancient text, partially lost to history: Sophocles’ The Searchers. This repaired version of the text will allow current students of classical and world literature, as well as those within Humanities Data Science (a newly proposed class), to read as full a version of the original text as can be reasonably reconstructed, as well as dissect, discuss, and reflect on the AI-generation process.
