SUMMARY
Psychologists would argue that it is social intelligence, rather than quantitative intelligence, that defines who we are as humans. But would machines need to have social intelligence? And how can we create technology with socio-emotional intelligence?

Join Hatice Gunes as she explains why socio-emotional intelligence for artificial systems is not a luxury but a necessity. She will focus on the different components of artificial social intelligence including perception, learning, action and adaptation, and will demonstrate representative examples of such technology in action.

SPEAKER
Prof Hatice Gunes is a Professor of Affective Intelligence and Robotics at University of Cambridge's Department of Computer Science and Technology. Prior to joining Cambridge in 2016, she was a Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London, and an honorary associate of University of Technology, Sydney. Her research interests are in the areas of affective computing and social signal processing that lie at the crossroad of multiple disciplines including, computer vision, signal processing, machine learning, multimodal interaction and human-robot interaction.

This is a theatre event, where the speaker and audience in our theatre are joined by an online audience. For Theatre attendees, the address is 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS.

TIMING
The doors will open at approximately 6.45pm, with a prompt start at 7.30pm. There will be a brief question/answer period after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
