Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science can be used to explore literature and communication in ELA classes. Finding patterns and meaning in text is an essential component of understanding the meaning behind what we read, hear and observe. By using natural language processing, we can analyse sentiment and story arcs, look at how characters interact, investigate changes in language over time, automate readability checking, and foster inquiry and critical thinking skills based on data from texts. We'll also talk about the growing trend in machine-generated text, including how you and your students can do this, as well as some potential issues and ethical considerations.
