Chapter Meeting - May 21, 2019


Keynote Presentation - Martin Medeiros

Here Come the Robots: New Research on the Automation of Influence, Persuasion and Negotiation

Martin Medeiros gives you immediate takeaways backed by the latest research on how human interaction is being automated regarding negotiation. Humans use a form of communication including influence, persuasion, and negotiation to communicate and obtain their needs. Increasingly, this is being automated and you may not know humans are not present in these functions with artificial intelligence and virtual personalities. In one recent study presented, you will learn that bipedal robots were trusted more than humans! AI is giving us a new understanding of engagement and influence. What is happening next? Explore the new trends with Martin.
