“My data is being used and exploited, and I can do nothing about it. We need to modernise the legal system. Apart from all the ethical, moral discussions that need to be made, we need a legal system that takes into consideration the fact that intelligence doesn’t need to be visible to be acting against me.”
This is a conversation with Dr Maria Aretoulaki. Maria is a Speech and Language technologies Consultant with a Post-Doc in Spoken Dialogue Management, a PhD in Automatic Text Summarisation, an M.Sc. in Machine Translation, and a B.A. in Linguistics.
