Extract from Greg's presentation :

Many people think of us as an avatar company, a digital human company, but we like to think of ourselves as a human computing company.  We’re at the beginning of this incredible era of artificial intelligence, of robots, self-driving cars, automated machinery. All of these things which are going to become a bigger and bigger part of our lives.

It means that as people we’re going to spend more and more time every single day interacting with these machines.  And our view on the world is:  wouldn’t it be more interesting, wouldn’t these machines be a whole lot more useful to us if they were actually more like us! So literally what we’re doing here is putting a face on artificial intelligence. We’re making our machines more human by giving them a virtual nervous system.
