Abstract:
Can you diagnose and fix your car?  Can you reboot your router?
We get along with technology better when we have some operational understanding
of how it works.  As we an approach an age when robots and other artificially
intelligent agents surround us, we must expand our mental models of machines to
include those that display autonomous goal-directed behaviors and even evoke
notions of intentionality.  As a case in point, today's Conversational Agents
are simultaneously very smart, and very dumb.  This talk will review the
Natural Language Processing and knowledge modeling technologies that give
Alexa and Google Home remarkable and engaging question answering and chat
abilities.  I will offer some fun tips on how to reverse-engineer how these
devices "think".
