ICAT Playdate — AI, Digital Humanities, and Collaborative Diversity

April 26, 2024

We will report on an ongoing collaboration between two Virginia Tech investigators, Professor David F. Green, our partner at Howard University, and our creative industry partner Sum at Glow Interactive, centered around AI, digital humanities, collaborative diversity, and bridging pedagogical and ideational processes between academia and the media and entertainment industry. We will report on the scope of our creative, pedagogical, ideational activities, comprising a prototype for intense, sustained engagement between Virginia Tech, HBCUs, and industry professionals.
