Can a computer crack a joke? Can it even have a sense of humor? For computer engineer and aspiring comedian Vinith Misra, this is not just a curiosity, it’s something we all need. By analyzing data sets in social media, Misra discovers ways to help us connect with each other, and make our often frustrating relationship with machines funnier – and friendlier.

TED@IBM was a TED-curated event showcasing speakers from across the IBM community. Produced in partnership with IBM, the event brought to light the often-overlooked; rebuilding social structures, sustainable approaches and the necessity of invention in order to build a better world.
