Talk on ChatGPT’s Endless Engagement Aesthetics at the Center for Digital Narrative in Bergen

As part of my work as a guest researcher with the Center for Digital Narrative at the University of Bergen in Norway, I gave a new talk about the endless engagement aesthetics of AI platforms like ChatGPT. Titled “Your perspective is quite insightful: Deconstructing the Endless Engagement Aesthetics of AI Platforms,” I walk through methods and reasoning for separating LLM models from the corporate interfaces that surround them, and use what I find to discuss the tactics companies like OpenAI are using to induce users into deep thinking and sharing, conversational flow, and increased engagement.
