Recknsense: Empathy and Cooperation among Humans and Machines
Welcome to the first newsletter from Recknsense. This blog started a few months ago as a place to post short ideas and observations for how we can develop technology that's better for humans. By better we mean, more equality, more inclusivity, promoting more happiness and generally leading us down a better path. We know there are issues from AI bias to privacy and we'll only solve these if we try to come up with new ideas and observations that might lead to a better alternative. The inspiration for this was partly from the 'commonplace book' where inventors of the past collected their ideas, observations, references and quotes so they could make connections and share their notes with others. We hope this will grow into a community for other people who feel the same, to contribute and connect to others. This week, the theme has been empathy and cooperation with 3 new posts, one reference based on a book about the origins of society, one observation based on new research and one idea built on the idea of empathy being developed in machines without the need for any emotion detection. Please check these out and some of our older posts then let us know what you think.
