A Robot Walks into a Bar: The comedy and social lives of machines (Science Pub Corvallis)


Monday, January 8, 2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Robots will increasingly rub shoulders with people at home and in the work place, so machines need social attributes: humor, personality and body language. Heather Knight, an assistant professor in computer science at Oregon State University, aims to develop machines that use their social qualities to empower people, not replace them. She directs the CHARISMA Lab (Collaborative Humans and Robots: Interaction, Sociability, Machine Learning, and Art) at OSU.
