Trusting AI Listening Devices
Huma’s talk will present benefits and concerns of personal digital assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Home. I’ll show brief video clips of question-answer sessions with these assistants to investigate how far they can answer any question using Turing’s criteria of satisfactory and sustained responses.
Huma joined Coventry University in June 2014 from Reading University where she gained her PhD in 'Deception-detection and machine intelligence in Practical Turing tests'. She worked on the EU FP7 funded 'RoboLaw' project which produced Guidelines for the regulation of robotic and emerging technologies. Huma is co-author of 'Turing's Imitation Game: Conversations with the Unknown', published by Cambridge University Press, September 2016. Her recent invited talks include at Skolkovo AI conference in Russia, November 2016, at EEMA's privacy vs security conference, London, July, and in Latin America's 'Brain and Mind Evolution' Symposium in Uruguay, 5-12 September.
