Should my child be friends with a robot?
13D Research

I had to make myself read this because I’m feeling fatigued by all the what if games we have to play around AI at the moment. But glad I did — very thought provoking. So, maybe we need more empathetic programmers and makers to build in more empathetic responses. Sure, it won’t be human, but the sassy and cynical responses built into some of the Siri type services are designed for adults and are probably created by geeks with a certain slant on the world. More women in tech might help with that and it is slowly happening.
