Upcoming Symposium

USC AI Futures Symposium

January 12-13, 2021

Interacting with AI systems is now commonplace, whether conversing about a dinner reservation, directing them to drive a car, or requesting music. But it is very apparent that they do not communicate like we do. They know very little about the world, are ignorant of social conventions, cannot learn our quirks from numerous conversations, and seem clearly confounded when something unexpected happens.

When will we interact with AI systems as if they were one of us? The challenge is immense, and this symposium presented critical areas of future research to achieve this vision.
