Talking my (second) language: How second language speakers interact with voice user interfaces.

Speaker:  Benjamin Richard Cowan – Dublin, Ireland
Topic(s):  Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural language processing


Voice user interfaces are now common. Yet not all functionality is afforded to all languages, leaving some users to have to use a second language to engage through voice, or face being excluded from specific functionality. My talk aims to identify specific issues related to second language use to interact with voice agents, discussing key cognitive and linguistic concepts that are important to understand how interaction unfolds for second language speakers.
