What's the talk about?

Speaker

Ben Cowen is a Research Fellow at the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. Before moving to Birmingham, he studied for his MA in Psychology and Business Studies and his PhD both at the University of Edinburgh.

Talk

His talk will focus on the world of human-computer interaction, otherwise known as HCI, looking at what it is and why it is important. I’ll also be exploring the question of whether design affects our behaviour in interaction with specific reference to how the design of speech interfaces like Siri affect our language behaviours and what that can tell us about how we construct speech in general.
