Artificial Intelligence - Research Keeps it More Human
The rapid advance of artificial intelligence (AI) begs a daunting question – will we ever achieve ‘human-like’ behavior in computational systems?

DiPaola’s team has been invited to showcase its work at a major AI conference—NeurIPS 2019— in Vancouver this week. Their demo enables visitors to approach and converse with a 3D avatar chatbot, which creates an artistic portrait of the visitors inspired by their emotions and personality via the team’s Empathy-based Affective Portrait Painter.
