Heinz College students recently completed a seven-week project to combat human trafficking. As part of Professor Chris Goranson’s Policy Innovation Lab course, students created a working prototype to create safer online employment opportunities for immigrants/asylum-seekers.

The team worked with a researcher at Johns Hopkins University to develop a machine learning (ML) model that identifies signals indicating the risk of human trafficking through job descriptions.

The tool has the potential to help law enforcement agencies and NGOs that are attempting to stop human trafficking. Find out more at https://bit.ly/3SlBNEr

Improving Designs to Make Intelligent Agents Smarter - Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences - Carnegie Mellon University 01/25/2024

The world of AI is ever-evolving, changing, and growing. In this dynamic landscape, researchers like Dr. Sara Moussawi, an Associate Teaching Professor at Heinz, are exploring the perception and use of AI systems within homes, such as Siri and Alexa.

Through her research, Moussawi has uncovered key insights into improving the user experience.

➡️ Designers should focus on system features that enhance autonomy, proactiveness, and natural language.

➡️ Users, she found, continued to use the technology when the AI's performance exceeded their original expectations.

➡️ Future AI designs should take into consideration the user's personal needs and context.

To explore more on this topic, you can read the article written by a colleague at Dietrich College below!
