  • CS Distinguished Lecture: Jodi Forlizzi (Carnegie Mellon University) - Designing Human Interaction with Agents and Robots

    Thu, Feb 18, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jodi Forlizzi, Carnegie Mellon University

    Talk Title: Designing Human Interaction with Agents and Robots

    Series: Computer Science Distinguished Lecture Series

    Abstract: Over the last decade, the idea that robots and agents might participate meaningfully in complex group and organizational contexts has developed from a promising vision into a reality. Robots now assist humans in simple tasks such as delivery through complex, high-stakes tasks such as disaster response and surgery. In this talk, I will introduce the discipline of design and describe, with examples from our work, how it is a critical research practice in designing complex agent and robot systems that fit in a number of social and organizational contexts and support all aspects of interaction.

    After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.



    Biography: Jodi Forlizzi is the Geschke Director and a Professor of Human-Computer Interaction in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. She is also the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Lead in the School of Computer Science. She is responsible for establishing design research as a legitimate form of research in HCI that is different from, but equally as important as, scientific and human science research. Jodi has advocated for design research in all forms, mentoring peers, colleagues, and students in its structure and execution, and today it is an important part of the HCI community. Her current research interests include designing human-robot interaction as a service and human-AI collaboration in the domains of eldercare, accessibility, human assistance, and overall wellbeing.
