Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies play an increasingly important role in our daily lives (i.e. Siri, Alexa, or Garmin applications). The companies that design them often include a name, voice, or avatar to humanize the tech interface. Several federal agencies are employing this technique on desktops, in call centers, in the battlefield, and more.


This program will bring together some of those thought leaders – from the public and private sectors – to discuss Humanizing the Tech Interface, its impact on adoption, and the risk implications associated with it.


This exciting video webinar takes an exclusive and in-depth look at building trust between humans and machines.
