On November 6, 7, and 8, 2023, the Faculty of Philology at the Complutense University of Madrid was the epicenter of the XXXVII International Congress of the Association of Young Linguists. In this prominent event, the fellows of the PROMETEO Project 2021/079, Anastasia Khaylina Tezikova, and Jose Antonio Ortega Gilabert, presented results obtained through the rigorous task of pragmatic labeling within the research project.
Anastasia Khaylina Tezikova: “Aggressive Humor Style on the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM Platform”
Anastasia Khaylina’s presentation, titled “Aggressive Humor Style on the OBSERVAHUMOR.COM Platform,” delves into the world of personality psychology and its relationship with humor. The work focuses on linguistically classifying the aggressive humor style, identifying humorous marks and indicators in the VALESCO.HUMOR corpus.
Jose Antonio Ortega Gilabert: “Artificial Intelligence and Humor: A Pragmatic Perspective”
On the other hand, Jose Antonio Ortega Gilabert addresses the relationship between artificial intelligence and humor from a pragmatic perspective in his presentation titled “Artificial Intelligence and Humor: A Pragmatic Perspective.” The study is based on the analysis of the video “AI Wrote and Performed a Jerry Seinfeld Routine!” by Speaking of AI, where GPT-3 imitates Jerry Seinfeld’s style. The work focuses on unraveling the pragmatic strategies used by artificial intelligence in creating humorous discourse. Based on pragmatic labeling according to humor marks and indicators, the analysis aims to shed light on how artificial intelligence, specifically GPT-3, employs various linguistic mechanisms to maintain audience attention.
