Talking With Technology

The Gateway by Dr. Amin Vahedian, Dr. Biagio Palese + Russell Devereaux

Episode notes

The Gateway will examine the conversations we are having with computers. Within the past decade, people have started to communicate in human-like ways with technology. Siri, Alexa, and chatbots are now part of daily life. This shift from communication as a human activity to one that is increasingly taking place among humans and machines raises questions regarding the implications for individuals, organizations, and society.

In this conversation, Dr. Andrea L. Guzman explains the study of human-machine communication and how it can help us understand our interactions with these devices, develop new technologies, and identify and address emerging social and ethical issues.
