What Can Go Wrong?

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.
