Dr. Green Organizing Symposium at Stanford

Dr. Nancy Green is co-organizer of a symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Health Communication, to be held at Stanford University March 21-23, 2011 as part of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence 2011 Spring Symposium Series. Design of effective health communication systems faces major challenges in terms of accessibility, trust, expert-to-lay knowledge translation, and persuasiveness. It is proposed that some of these challenges can be addressed by use of AI techniques in combination with empirically-based theoretical frameworks from the field of health communication and related areas. This symposium will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to identify possible solutions.
