Exploring the Frontiers of AI in Language Learning
Connecting people and cultures through Responsible AI

Hello, Saga community and curious minds! In our inaugural podcast episode, hosted by Cheryl Nguyen, we dive into the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its potential in revolutionizing language learning and humanities research.

E01: Responsible AI

AI and Language Learning: Breaking Down Complex Concepts
Our first episode kicks off with a compelling conversation with Chloe Johnson, Chief Research Officer at Saga. Chloe simplifies the intricate concepts of AI, making them accessible to all, regardless of their background in the subject. She explains how AI, particularly generative AI, is evolving from basic autocomplete systems to advanced platforms capable of generating text, images, music, and even video clips.

Generative AI: A Leap Towards More Human-like Interactions
Generative AI, as Chloe elucidates, is not just about text completion anymore. It's about creating content that is more human-like, making AI conversations more relatable and engaging. This advancement holds immense potential for language learning and humanities, offering new methods to approach these disciplines.

Responsible AI: Navigating Ethical Boundaries
A significant portion of our discussion focuses on the ethics of AI. We delve into the concept of 'responsible AI' and how it's essential to ensure AI developments align with ethical standards, avoiding the sci-fi trope of AI overpowering humanity. We also touch upon the importance of trust in AI systems, discussing how certification labels can significantly boost user confidence.

LLM (Language Learning Model): A New Era of Language Acquisition
Chloe also introduces us to Language Learning Models (LLMs), which can be used for scholarly purposes, especially when using natural language patterns is crucial, as in the support of language learning. LLMs represent a paradigm shift in language education, offering tailored learning experiences that adapt to different proficiency levels.

Saga’s Mission: Pioneering AI in Humanities Education
The episode culminates with an insight into Saga's mission – creating an LLM tailored for humanities education. Our aim is to provide holistic learning tools that facilitate gradual and comprehensive language acquisition, moving beyond traditional rote learning methods.
