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”.
