TURINTEST.png

“Empathy, evidently, existed only within the human community” -- Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, 1968


The recent rapid advances in AI have led a lot of people to ponder what a world of tomorrow populated with intelligent machines will look like. For some people, the promise is for a bright future for humanity where AI’s help us in our homes, assist in caring for the elderly or raising children, and operate alongside us at work to boost our performance and even our creativity. An example is Kasparov [5, 2017], who describes the successes of human-machine partnerships in chess and extrapolates from these to a positive human future in the age of AI.       read more

'A Test for Artificial Empathy' by Adam Brandenburger* and Cheryl Loh** explores the idea of creating a 'Turing-like test' for Artificial Empathy.

*Adam Brandenburger holds appointments at New York University as J.P. Valles Professor at the Stern School of Business, Distinguished Professor at the Tandon School of Engineering, and Director of the NYU Shanghai Program on Creativity + Innovation.

ai_empathy_test.jpg

How might tomorrow's world filled with intelligent machines look like? Will it be as the promised bright future for humanity or a AI apocalypse of out of control machines? How might AI help improve our well being? Can we ensure AI safety and value alignment? Can we even align AI values with diverse human values? Should humans be included in the feedback loop? Can AI learn from humans or tutor them in turn?
