Agency & Awareness
Imagine a world beyond shallow, voice-activated assistants, where you have personalized virtual agents that learn how best to tailor their actions to your personal style, continually improving the efficacy of their interactions.
The Agency & Awareness mission fuses the perception capability of GE Research’s Sherlock Computer Vision platform with an adaptive, intelligent agent tasked with the goal of persuading you to take certain beneficial actions. This could be something as simple as taking a survey, or something more sophisticated like customized care to convince and guide a patient to follow a course of medical action.
Key demonstrations in November 2018 : Integrated end-to-end system installed outside the GE Research café, capturing interactions with researchers every day resulting in observations of the effectiveness of Joan with respect to convincing people to take a moment to complete a simple survey. This system was the first of its kind to perform such close loop learning.
