The Georgia Institute of Technology’s AI teaching assistant Jill Watson turned 5 years old in January. Since the birth of Jill, Georgia Tech has gone on to produce groundbreaking new research that reveals how conversations between humans and bots can be used to improve user experiences. A recent research paper titled “Towards Mutual Theory of Mind in Human-AI Interaction: How Language Reflects What Students Perceive About a Virtual Teaching Assistant” explores how to build chatbots that can conduct natural and prolonged conversations. In a Q&A with EdTech: Focus on Higher Education, Qiaosi Wang, lead author of the paper and a Ph.D. student in human-centered computing at Georgia Tech’s Design and Intelligence Lab, discusses the implications of the paper’s findings for higher education.
