PAUL JONES: Science behind the 'Jeopardy!' giant killer
Sunday, June 9, 2019 -- What do we do at the UNC School of Information and Library Science? We used to teach people how to use technology. Now we teach technology how to use people. It sounds like a joke and in a way it is. But more and more the essence of our interactions with technologies is through natural language, speaking to our devices. They are expected to understand our accents, our pauses and our phrasings. But more so, as we interact with them, we are training them how to understand us -- and we are being trained how to ask questions effectively to those devices.
