Conversations on Conversational AI
In an effort to understand the limitations and possibilities of interacting with AI-powered conversational agents (CAs), we previously ran a workshop that interrogated commercial CAs including Alexa, Siri, and Google Home. We probed these agents around issues of trust, ownership, identity, gender, and ecology and learned about their biases and logics.
In this workshop, we will share our learnings and then use creative exercises to engage in a conversation about the possibilities of a trustworthy AI-powered assistant without ties to companies that profit off user data. Our goal is to engage in wide-ranging discussions across diverse cultures and geographies to enable critically-aware users of AI.
