Every week, all around Hong Kong, there are many fascinating talks and lectures happening, on a variety of topics. You can easily find them online by looking at the websites of our universities, societies, and libraries. We've chosen ten for you to listen to here on Radio 3. For the next few Sunday mornings at 7.30, Carol Mang will be introducing abridged versions of what we think are a great selection of talks for you to listen to and indulge your... Mind Matters.
In this week's episode, we will have a look into the use of AI. We now rely heavily on different kinds of conversational AI such as Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant to solve problems and facilitate working processes. Professor Rodney Jones from the University of Reading, will analyse how people speak to AI now and explore the impact of digital media on people’s communication with machines. Professor Jones was invited by the Digital Society research cluster and the Department of English of the City University of Hong Kong to give a talk entitled Trolling the bot: Human-machine performances and the metapragmatics of AI. We'll hear part of it this week.
Sundays from 7.30am to 8am... on Radio 3
