In this episode of the ARCHITECHT AI Show, Signe Brewster interviews Marynel Vazquez—a recent Carnegie Mellon Ph.D student and soon-to-be Yale professor—about building robots that understand humans' social cues, and that give their own in return. Among other things, Vazquez discusses the importance of body language, facial expressions, and the promise of deep learning to teach robots about new environments and interactions.

In the news segment, co-hosts Brewster, Derrick Harris and Chris Albrecht discuss the importance of natural language when speaking with robots as well as business software, the need to monitor the state of AI research, and why millennials don't appear too afraid of machines taking their jobs.
