The key to people trusting and co-operating with artificially intelligent agents lies in their ability to display human-like emotions, according to a new study by Postdoctoral Fellow Moojan Ghafurian, Master’s candidate Neil Budnarain and Professor Jesse Hoey at the Cheriton School of Computer Science.
Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Jesse Hoey has teamed up with Professor Robert Freeland, a sociologist at Wake Forest University, to conduct novel research at the intersection of computer science and social psychology.
Blockchain technology creates digital ledgers that record sequential exchanges of information, commonly called transactions. To improve performance, transactions are batched into blocks before they are added to the ledger. Each new block contains a hash value which, like a mugshot, acts as an identifier and proof of the previous state of the ledger.
