Ben A. Shneiderman – Human-Centered AI: Reliable, Safe & Trustworthy
June 8 @ 10:30 pm EDT
A new synthesis is emerging that integrates AI technologies with HCI approaches to produce Human-Centered AI (HCAI). Advocates of this new synthesis seek to amplify, augment, and enhance human abilities, so as to empower people, build their self-efficacy, support creativity, recognize responsibility, and promote social connections. These passionate advocates of HCAI are devoted to furthering human values, rights, justice, and dignity, by building reliable, safe, and trustworthy systems.
The talk offers three ideas: – HCAI framework, which shows how it is possible to have both high levels of human control AND high levels of automation – Design metaphors emphasizing powerful supertools, active appliances, tele-operated devices, and information abundant displays – Governance structures to guide software engineering teams, safety culture lessons for managers, independent oversight to build trust, and government regulation to accelerate innovation
The talk will include examples, references to further work, and discussion time for questions.
