A. Baki Kocaballi is a research fellow at the Centre for Health Informatics at Macquarie University. He has a PhD in Interaction Design and MSc in Information Systems. His research investigates the opportunities and challenges of designing and evaluating AI-enabled conversational agents in healthcare.
Juan C Quiroz is a research fellow at the Centre for Health Informatics at Macquarie University. He has a PhD in Computer Science, and his current research explores the natural language processing for the automated summarization of medical conversations through speech interfaces.
Liliana Laranjo is a medical doctor with a Master of Public Health from Harvard University, and a PhD in Health informatics. Liliana works at the Centre for Health Informatics at Macquarie University. Her current research focuses on person-centered health informatics, online social networks, artificial intelligence, and behavior change informatics.
Dana Rezazadegan is a post-doctoral research fellow at Macquarie University. She is currently working on using artificial intelligence to automate documentation and diagnosis for helping doctors in examination room. She studied her Ph.D. in Robotics and Autonomous systems with a focus on robotic vision and deep learning at Queensland University of Technology.
Rafał Kocielnik is a PhD student at Human Centered Design & Engineering Department at University of Washington. His current research focuses on creating smart technologies for persuasion and behavior change through conversational interfaces. He also investigates broader user perceptions of AI systems and the ways of augmenting the design process with AI technologies.
Leigh Clark is a Lecturer in Computer Science at Swansea University. His research examines user interactions with speech interfaces, how design choices and contexts impact user perceptions and behaviors and how linguistic theories can be implemented and redefined in speech-based HCI.
Vera Liao is a research staff member in IBM Research AI at T.J Watson Research Center. She has a PhD in HCI and master’s degree in human factors from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her current research focuses on human-AI interactions, in particular the design of conversational agents and tools that support the development of agents.
Sun Young Park is an assistant professor at the University of Michigan in the Stamps School of Art and Design and the School of Information. Her research uses design ethnography to study patient engagement, patient–provider collaboration, patient-centered health technology, and technology adaptation. Her work has been awarded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
Robert J. Moore is a scientist at IBM Research-Almaden. His current work applies conversation science to the design of conversational agents. His recent book outlines a methodology for conversational UX design. Bob has a Ph.D. in sociology with a concentration in Conversation Analysis.
Adam Miner is a licensed clinical psychologist, and instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine. He uses experimental and observational studies to improve the ability of conversational AI to recognize and respond to health issues. His current focus is the use of modern computational approaches, such as natural language processing, and AI to understand language patterns in psychotherapy.
