XR, AI, & the Future of Language Revitalization
Today, over 3000 languages are in danger of becoming extinct. Their loss would be profound: entire world-views are encoded into the nuances of language: their wisdom and perspectives can provide important perspectives for understanding our shared humanity. This panel explores cutting-edge technologies by Native American technologists and linguistics experts using AI and XR to create contextualized, place-based, immersive linguistic soundscapes and visual environments available worldwide.
