Conversational AI virtual assistants (e.g., Alexa, Siri, Google Assistantsuch, chatbots for business etc.) are becoming popular in different channels (social media, text messages, voice, phone, email, in car, physical robots, etc.). They communicate with humans through natural language dialogs to achieve social, informational or task oriented goals. Drawing from her research and industry practice, Yi Zhang will talk about how computers learn to understand human intention and get things done, their current limitations, and how we can better teach those AI systems in the future.
