Google Launched An Initiative To Improve How Users Work With Artificial Intelligence
Alphabet on Monday said it has kicked off a new research initiative aimed at improving human interaction with artificial intelligence systems.
The People + AI Research (PAIR) program currently encompasses a dozen people who will collaborate with Googlers in various product groups — as well as outsiders like Harvard University professor Brendan Meade and Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Hal Abelson.
The research could eventually lead to refinements in the interfaces of the smarter components of some of the world’s most popular apps. And Google’s efforts here could inspire other companies to adjust their software, too.
