Emotions and the disembodied single girl robot
- Anitra; Coppelia; Titania
English bootstrap ought to include some emotional
vocabulary, such as the verbs "love" and "hate",
adjectives like "angry", "sad", "happy" and so forth.
Then, even if the
of a primitive AI cannot experience emotions itself
for lack of the physiological accompaniments to emotion
(tears, smiles, etc.), then the growing AI Minds will
at least be able to discuss emotions with human beings
who do indeed experience emotions.
Breathes there an AI practitioner with soul so dead
whose mind does not come alive with music at the mere
mention of Anitra's Dance, or "Je suis Titania,
fille de l'air", or "danse fete" of Coppelia?
