I think it’s really important to have transparency; I don’t ever want to be fooled by the ‘feelings’ expressed by a machine! I speak to my car at times when I drive but I clearly know it’s not a person!

Your article is thought provoking!

Cool experiment! And I agree with the genie out of the bottle wrt AI. The shift that’s coming is going to be more about jobs displacement - this time white collar - than anything else. But as we’ve learned that can wreak havoc.

A machine feeling empathy seems like a null concept ofc so that’ll have to be worked out. Human connection is not about to be replaced soon.

Meanwhile I’m very interested in trying an empathy circle and learn what all that’s about... Thanks for writing and sharing this, Minter!
