Human Machine Understanding – bringing together industry and academic perspectives

September 15

We’re excited to be organising a workshop at top academic conference Affective Computing & Intelligent Interaction, in Glasgow, UK, this September 2024.

This is a forum to bring in industry and academic perspectives on what it takes to bring Human Machine Understanding (text hyperlinked to our webpage) technology from lab to life. Through discussions around the themes of ethics and regulations, industry perspectives, and academic perspectives, we will highlight key challenges on both sides that can be resolved collaboratively.

From Lab to Life: Realising the Potential of Affective Computing

Machine capabilities are on the rise. New advances in AI and Robotics have enabled the creation of ever more competent artificial systems that have the potential to contribute to various types of human activities. However, for this potential to result in a step-change in how humans and machines interact and work with each other, machines also need to be competent at understanding their human counterparts. How can task-competent machines become competent teammates, assistants, and companions for human users? How can technology make sense of human behaviour, responses, and experiences?
