Mental Model in Human-AI Interaction Symposium

As we interact with increasingly advanced AI systems, different mental models are constructed and adapted to facilitate, drive, and support the success of human-AI interactions.

What kinds of mental models are there? How do we leverage them in human-AI interaction? What are some sociotechnical considerations of mental models? Join us on June 8th for an online symposium on “Mental Model in Human-AI Interaction” to explore these questions with us.
