Eh, you got a point there, my friend.

Because it seems silly to me to be afraid a robot's "emotions" when they aren't really emotions at all, just an emulator. It just feels to me like Takahashi's response was a bit over the top.

They had to shut it down because a giant, heavy machine keeps lunging itself at humans trying to hug it. Lol.

What defines "real" emotions though? I mean, aren't our emotions really just an accumulation of data we've received and learned to emulate? Why do we feel empathy? Because we've learned to. Because we're programmed to. Why do we feel sad when people say mean things? Because we've been taught that they're mean and that it should hurt us.



Why wouldn't it be "real" just because a human did the programming of a robot rather then God or Nature (or however you see it) doing it for humans?

I agree to a point. But computer software has nowhere near the complexity of the human brain. They don't have needs, such as in Maslow's hierarchy and are not a product of evolution. Scientists are beginning to be able to program robots to learn and adapt but they are limited by the input of man. Perhaps robots are a product of our evolution and future robots will reflect our own natural selection.

I think it's fucking terrifying and scientists need to stop before robots get out of hand.
