One of the many advantages that human have over machines is the ability  to appreciate the intangible around us. The emotional warmth of a  supporting friend, the beauty of a piece of art, the ambiance of a  place, the vibe of a city after a global event. The day in which AI will  match humans in this ability might not be too far down the road though.  At Nokia Bell Labs we combine network science, social science, and AI to  learn how to measure the intangible (and its effect on our behaviour)  with fully automated tools.
