USM, British debate teams tackle AI in special debate

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The University of Southern Mississippi Speech and Debate team engaged in a face-to-face debate with counterparts from across the pond Friday afternoon.

They debated the pros and cons of artificial intelligence with members of the British National Debate Team at USM's International Center.

The British team is on an eight-week tour of the U.S., debating different topics at 21 different universities.

British teams have been taking part in similar tours since 1922.

It is the sixth year in a row for USM to host the team.
