As time goes on, we see Artificial Intelligence slowly moving from simple “if this, then that” commands, which are not AI, but simple decision matrix, into much more powerful technologies. Some speculate that a self-learning AI either is already here or is coming very soon.
That said, the things being put into cars are not what we would call true AI, because we as people are still holding onto the moral decisions, instead of a computer. So what’s missing that computers need to learn for true AI to be working? Emotions.
The question is, can we teach computers emotions? Here’s a quote from the TED Talk shared below:
Raphael Arar suggests we start by making art. He shares interactive projects that help AI explore complex ideas like nostalgia, intuition and conversation — all working towards the goal of making our future technology just as much human as it is artificial.
After you watch the video, let us know in the comments your thoughts on AI learning emotions and how you feel about letting computers making moral choices for us.
