Artificial Intelligence is accelerating at an unprecedented speed, and as such is poised to play an incredibly greater role in our lives over the next few years. Deep neural networks currently achieve state-of-the-art performance on a very wide range of tasks, from speech recognition and machine translation to image detection and visual understanding. With these advances in the background, we are now able to pay more attention to the difficult questions of creating more socially and psychologically sophisticated machines. In this talk, I discuss some of the relevant issues and introduce some of our recent work focused at creating ‘social’ machines.
