For artificial intelligence to work and play alongside humans it's going to have to understand us, and maybe even behave more like us. Natural language processing is only the beginning as we move toward AI that can understand how we feel and even predict our actions. This panel will take a look at the latest advancements toward making AI feel less like machines. Can understanding our own brains help us make smarter AI? How long until your AI coworker is just as good as a human one? Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the latest trends in AI and what the future holds.
