Abstract [sv]

Det blir allt vanligare med teknik såsom mobiltelefoner som pratar med människor och vardagen blir allt mer lik en verklighet som tidigare endast existerat i fiktion. Tekniken talar med hjälp av så kallade röstgränssnitt, system som låter datorer tolka och/eller förmedla information genom tal. Uppsatsen ifrågasätter strävan efter att göra dessa gränssnitts röster mänskliga och undersöker hur tekniken kan ges en egen individualitet. Undersökningen grundas i tidigare forskning som behandlar hur människor bemöter röstgränssnitt. Genom en filmanalys med utgångspunkt i identitet och relationer undersöks hur relationen människa-maskin gestaltas i fiktion. I slutsatsen diskuteras hur dessa lärdomar om fiktiva karaktärer går att appliceras på röstgränssnitt i vardagen. Utvecklingen av gränssnitt har tidigare anpassats till de människor som ska vara i kontakt med dem. Undersökningen tyder dock på att ett identitetsfrämjande tankesätt kring utformningen av röstgränssnitt, att ge rösten en egen individualitet med tydlig personlighet och historia, potentiellt kan förbättra relationen mellan människa och gränssnitt.

Abstract [en]

It has become increasingly commonplace that technology uses speech to communicate with people and everyday life has started to resemble a reality that previously only existed in fiction. They speak using so-called voice interface systems that allow computers to interpret and/or convey information through speech. This essay questions the pursuit to make these interfaces human and examines how interfaces can be granted a unique individuality. The analysis is based upon earlier research that examines human-interface relations. Through film analysis it is examined how the man-machine relationship is portrayed in fiction and what lessons about non-human characters are applicable to the development of voice interface systems. Earlier, voice interfaces have been adapted to the people who will be in contact with them. However, the analysis indicates that a identity-promoting view on the voice interface development, giving the voice an individuality with a clear personality and history, might improve the relationship between human and interface.
