Towards Having Smart Computers on my Team

CSIG talk today by Barbara Grosz of Harvard: “Is Your Intelligent Computer Smart Enough To Be on My Team” or more serious title: “Interactive Intelligence and Health Care Coordination”.   Slides here.   Some excellent description of research work going on at Stanford and Harvard on the topic.   Reminded me of work we also did to augment human teams with collaborative AI systems.   One example was our "Copy Owl" system.  Barbara and her team are driving the idea forward for health care team collaboration.

Broadly the challenge is aptly described as not 'intelligence', but "  ... Can a computer team member behave over the long term, in such a way that people will not notice it's not human or think it's  stupid. ... " 

Ongoing discussion on the talk on Linkedin Group.

More on past and future talks in this series, usually held every Thursday at 10:30 AM EST.
