mediaX Hosts AI for Culturally Relevant Interactions Forum

September 26, 2018
AI Interactions Forum

On October 17th 2018, mediaX will host a forum that includes keynotes and panel presentations of horizon research, as well as the opportunity to explore challenges and opportunities through discussion between academic and industry Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning experts, coupled with practitioners seeking new solutions for society today and in the future.

A better understanding of the relationship between identity, culture and AI technologies can lead to dramatic improvements in how consumers, students and patients relate to information and to content, devices and services. A deeper understanding of cultural traditions, history, and relevance can have a broad and far-reaching impact on the interactive technologies of the future, particularly in conjunction with storytelling and narrative elements.

Some of the speakers you’ll hear from:
Adam Banks, Professor Stanford Graduate School of Education and the Faculty Director, Program in Writing and Rhetoric
Hossein Rahnama, Founder & CEO at Flybits
Rama Akkiraju, Director, Distinguished Engineer, and Master Inventor at IBM’s Watson Division
Angèle Christin, Assistant Professor Department of Communication at Stanford University
Davar Ardalan, IVOW Founder and Storyteller in Chief
Albert Boyang Li, Senior Research Scientist at Baidu Research
Cory Kidd, Founder and CEO of Catalia Health

Initial Questions to be considered:
*What cultural issues and concerns are critical for AI applications?
*How will consumers’ relationships to brands be shaped by culture in AI storytelling?
*How does culture influence perception of human rights and privileges in the digital world?
*How can traditions, histories, and collective experiences shape an individual’s experience of AI products?
*What elements of human culture can be emulated by artificially intelligent entities, particularly in a world of such varied human experiences?
