​Yeah, I guess that was ambiguous.  Of course I am biased, being a social
psychologist, but many fields overlap psych:  marketing, management, AI,
economics and so forth.  If someone is going to program robots to converse
with people, we need to know more about people than we do, esp. if the
robot is supposed to detect deception, hidden meanings, emotional
reactions, and other subtleties​
​. Enormous progress has been made in reading faces, for example, that
would need to be programmed into robots or AI or whatever broad term
applies.  Ditto for research showing how vocalizations can be read for
stress and other emotions.  Lie detection is getting sophisticated.
