About this session

What comes to mind when you think of artificial intelligence? Robots taking over the world and destroying humanity? Fortunately, this is a myth. In reality, AI has a strongly human side which sometimes doesn’t make it into the popular media. In this talk, we will take a human path through AI, looking at its social side, uncovering the opportunities to use this innovative set of technologies to build social and people skills like empathy and emotional intelligence. We’ll look at how engaging interacting with computers can be, how we are at ease having conversations with Siri and Alexa, and how we can capitalize on these experiences to enable social learning.

You will learn:

  • The hype vs reality of AI
  • The human and social side of AI
  • How AI can help humans build their people skills and be more human
