Natural human-like human-robot interactions require many functional capabilities from a robot that have to be reflected in architectural components in the robotic control architecture.  In particular, various mechanisms for producing social behaviors, goal-oriented cognition, and robust intelligence are required.  In this paper, we present an overview of the most recent version of our DIARC architecture and show how several novel algorithms attempt to address these three areas, leading to more natural interactions with humans, while also extending the overall capability of the integrated system.
