“For me one of the strange takeaways of thinking so much about artificial intelligence is this feeling of how complex it is to sit across a table from someone and communicate with body language and tone and rhythm and all of these things.

You learn someone through these small surprises.” – Brian Christian, on Radiolab episode “Talking to Machines
