A company called Emoshape has developed an emotional processing unit that allows artificial intelligence to feel emotions, specifically anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise, anticipation, trust, and joy.
I confess to having only a vague concept of what this means. Still, it’s both interesting and troubling. I’m not sure an emotional artificial intelligence is better than a coldly calculating one. Does this diminish or enhance concerns over artificial intelligence such as those voiced by Elon Musk? I don’t know.
