"Human-AI Interaction: AI as a Material to Craft Intelligent User Interfaces"

Cognitive capacities, which are limited and subject to daily fluctuations, present a significant hurdle when interacting with computer interfaces. Consequently, human productivity, from both a subjective and objective standpoint, is constrained by this crucial factor. Integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) into user interfaces rapidly changes the landscape. AI has emerged as an essential component, enabling interfaces to comprehend user requirements and offer adaptive support in real-time, bridging the gap between human adaptability and machine efficiency. With the integration of ubiquitous sensing mechanisms, AI becomes a material for new tools that create empowering interactive intelligent interfaces. In this talk, I will explain sensing strategies, their widespread application, and their possible challenges in human-AI interaction:
1. I will show how AI implicitly senses users for emotions and mental workload.
2. Then, I will present applications that use these user states for inferences in interactive applications.
3. Finally, I will discuss the pitfalls and risks of using AI in human-AI interaction.

"OpinionGPT: An opinionated GPT-like model tuned specifically for German"

I present our ongoing work on OpinionGPT, a GPT-like model trained on German-language parts of the online forum Reddit. Due to the nature of the training data, our model gives opinionated answers to all your questions - in German! I give some details on the training process, the results and discuss next steps. You can try out the online demo here:
