How to Trust a Machine?
Free Public Lecture
Machine Intelligence plays a growing role in our lives. Today, machines recommend things to us, such as news, music and household products. They trade in our stock markets, and optimise our transport and logistics. They are also beginning to drive us around, play with our children, diagnose our health and run our government. How do we ensure that these machines will be trustworthy? This talk explores various psychological, social, cultural and political factors that shape our trust in machines. It will also propose an interdisciplinary agenda for understanding and improving our human-machine ecology.
