Barbara A. Barry, Ph.D., is a human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher who studies how interaction with artificial intelligence (AI) impacts human intelligence, communication and behavior. Dr. Barry has made fundamental contributions to AI, developed and evaluated intelligent interactive software agents, and collaborated on large-scale implementations of new technologies to improve health and education. Dr. Barry's work focuses on how technology enables (or disables) human agency in health care and how to create productive, ethical and evidence-based use of AI within a learning health care system.
As a new wave of AI is embedded into health care delivery quickly and with high expectations, patients and providers are increasingly deluged with complex data and interactions with intelligent systems. Opportunities abound for AI to detect intricate patterns of human-computer interaction for diagnostics and to tailor interventions across the care continuum. Such innovations and the implementation of AI algorithms into clinical practice require systematic evaluation to understand the impacts on providers, patients and caregivers and help AI deliver on its promise in health care.
