I was thinking, while reading this, if some genius at Google has come up with a way to create an empathetic search algorithm. For example, when the search terms "Do I take aspirin or Tylenol" and the search engine responds with "Tell me how you are feeling and I can help you better."
So how do we cultivate empathy, how do we make sure that empathy is enhanced in our society and also in the development process of these new products and services?
If today’s software engineers are creating the A.I. consciousness of tomorrow, you would want it to have the capacity for intelligent, emotional interactions and relationships. It doesn’t seem unreasonable that a machine would have an acute emotional component
