6:30pm Talk by Tamsin Huggins and Alexandra Craciun:
AI and Human Interaction
Tamsin and Alexandra are teaming up to discuss Human-AI Interaction. Tamsin will kick things off by outlining the landscape of Human-Centred AI (HCAI), an interdisciplinary field that furthers AI to complement human capabilities, needs, and values. Tamsin will then dive into the topic of her research master’s: interactive AI for creative collaboration. Seeing as speech is a crucial mode of human-AI interaction, Alexandra will explore the fascinating journey of how speech interaction evolved: from chatbots, to smart devices and even to multimodal general artificial intelligence (GAI). She will talk about the importance of natural, human-like speech interaction, as well as the crucial aspect of speech privacy. Get ready for an enlightening discussion that bridges the gap between humans and technology!
7:15pm Talk by Adebola “Debs” Adegbulugbe:
