Emotion in AIs

The sequel to Nano-Uncertainty, More Uncertainty, looks at whether or not an AI can represent emotions, and, if so, could those representations be used to control the AI’s actions.

While listening to a fascinating discussion on Forum, https://ww2.kqed.org/forum/2017/04/11/emotions-are-a-construct-of-the-brain-says-psychologist-lisa-feldman-barrett/ with Lisa Feldman Barrett, one of the call-in-ers mentioned to her that he worked in AI and his project was to see if emotions could be used to control an AI.

Guess I’m not the first person to think of this idea, but, hopefully, I’ll be one of the first to put it in a novel.

Here’s a book on the¬†subject:¬†https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-94-009-2792-6_12. At $439.00 for the book, I think I will wait for the movie.
