When an IBM supercomputer named Watson takes on human contestants on the quiz show Jeopardy! this week, it will represent the latest triumph of advances that could one day enable people to interact much more naturally with computers, according to a UT Dallas expert in human-machine interaction.
“This is a milestone because Watson will compete directly against humans, and moreover against the champions of Jeopardy!” said Dr. Sanda Harabagiu, a leader in the field of human-computer interaction for more than a decade. “This is important, and it’s a more realistic gauge than simply comparing a system to search engines.”
It’s hard enough to create a system that can interact via spoken language fast enough to compete on Jeopardy!, but Harabagiu and her collaborators in the University’s Human Language Technology Research Institute are already working on even more complex human-computer interactions.
