Developing AI Voice Technologies for Children blog

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Conversational AI (CAI) systems and Intelligent Personal Assistants such as Alexa, Google Home and Siri are becoming ubiquitous in our lives. Automatic Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing, and Deep Learning Models have all seen rapid innovation.

One area that is receiving increasing attention is the implications of CAI for children, especially in relation to their cognitive, social and linguistic development. Though such technologies are increasingly popular across the generations, they remain relatively opaque to the user, little is known about how to safely and responsibly design CAI for children and tackling the implications of these technologies is increasingly pressing.

Join Jenn Chubb and Sondess Missaoui from Digital Creativity Labs to hear about technical and ethical considerations when developing voice technologies for children, and recommendations for their adoption in the real-world.
