Odds and ends

Way too heavy for me to deal with at the end of this fine Wednesday night. Bo Leuf sent me this link, which tries to explain emotions. From what I could gather, this is from the “programming emotions” standpoint–and I don’t mean willfully controlling your emotions. I mean programming a machine to feel.
I would never want to inflict what I feel on anything, even a machine. But I’m not everybody else either. I remember arguing this in a philosophy class. I was in the minority opinion that you couldn’t program a machine to feel. Strangely enough, I was the only one in the class with any CS background. Oh well.

I suspect it makes for an interesting read. I’ll add it to my to-do list.
