The question of how would the robots' programmers create the code to teach empathy, probably the most essential human emotion, was evocative. Empathy in a human evolves over the course of our growth from infant to child and it, too, is a taught concept from our parents but it does require that the neural pathway in our brains linked to the emotion are intact and functioning. Would a programmer, then, be able to hardwire, as it were, the same capacity in an AI brain in order to allow it to evolve into an empathetic auto-response?
Extremely well done!
