Professor Roz Picard, director and founder of the Affective Computing Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's famed Media Lab, argues some artificial intelligence researchers are not adequately addressing the ‘why’ behind their AI work, but are instead too focused on getting their next paper published or grant secured. Roz, a scientist, inventor, and entrepreneur, believes society trusts machines too much and humans and machines should partner and coevolve together. CNN named Roz one of seven "Tech Superheroes to watch in 2015." Jeff talks to Roz shortly after she delivered her TEDxBeaconStreet Talk.
