51:41 - What To Expect When You're Expecting Robots: The Future of Human-Robot Collaboration (Book Discussion)


54:40 - More on Human/Machine Collaboration:



Girl Decoded: A Scientist's Quest to Reclaim Our Humanity by Bringing Emotional Intelligence to Technology
Reinforcement learning with human teachers: Evidence of feedback and guidance with implications for learning performance
Evaluating fluency in human–robot collaboration


Reflections:


Rein: There may be a sense in which AI or ML systems are categorically different from the sorts of systems we’ve tried to control in the past because you can’t characterize the variety of the system anymore just by observing its inputs and outputs.


Damien: Artificial intelligence is not human intelligence, nor should it be. The goals are making systems and human lives better; not making the computer better.


Julie: Aim for mediocrity!
