Today we’re joined by Joon Sung Park, a PhD Student at Stanford University. Joon shares his passion for creating AI systems that can solve human problems and his work on the recent paper Generative Agents: Interactive Simulacra of Human Behavior, which showcases generative agents that exhibit believable human behavior. We discuss using empirical methods to study these systems and the conflicting papers on whether AI models have a worldview and common sense. Joon talks about the importance of context and environment in creating believable agent behavior and shares his team's work on scaling emerging community behaviors. He also dives into the importance of a long-term memory module in agents and the use of knowledge graphs in retrieving associative information. The goal, Joon explains, is to create something that people can enjoy and empower people, solving existing problems and challenges in the traditional HCI and AI field.
