Updated with podcast! See bottom of post.

How do people interact with and understand new technology, from computers to robots? This week’s episode features Matthew Zmudka talking to two scientists working at the intersection of psychology and technology. First, he’ll talk to Dominique Brossard, professor in Life Sciences Communication at University of Wisconsin-Madison, about her work on perceptions of new technology as influenced by Internet comments. Then, we’ll hear from Bilge Mutlu, an assistant professor of Computer Science, Psychology, and Industrial Engineering at UW-Madison, about his work on human-computer interaction and development of new robotic technologies.

As always, listen in on Thursday at 7pm CST on 89.9 FM or online anywhere here on the WORT website.
