Making AI More Emotional – Part One

Emotions are our most human quality, but what if we could teach AI to understand our feelings? The goal of artificial intelligence (AI) research has shifted over the years; to compute what humans could not, to beat us in specific tasks, and most recently to create an algorithm that can show its working. But while the majority of research has been concentrated on narrow AI that can do one thing very well, others have been working on the alchemic pursuit of making algorithms more human.
