What this thread has proven to me is that some of the smartest people I
know do not understand compassion, so the likelihood that "ai emotions"
will be any better is small (assuming ai will be "learning" such things
from other "smart people")

The word is rooted in "co-suffering" and is about experiencing someone's
situation as one's own.   Simply sharing "I understand" could be an act of
compassion.   Our world is so lacking in this feature that even the
commonly understood meaning of the word has been lost. That seems very
Newspeak to me.  (smh)
