Artificial empathy

Is an algorithm capable of empathy? We discussed this question at the Swiss Economic Forum. Many people may doubt that. I believe that artificial intelligence will soon be able to simulate more empathy than some people can bring into play.

Stupid intelligence

Einstein already knew that measurements and observations are never neutral. They are always connected to what has been measured and observed. This is part of the theory of relativity. In data science, one occasionally pretends that this basic physical law does not apply. This is apparent in the hype surrounding artificial intelligence (AI).
