Scientists in the Netherlands are endowing a robotic cat with a set of logical rules for emotions. They believe that by introducing emotional variables to the decision-making process, they should be able to create more-natural human and computer interactions.
  1. Call me crazy, but the phrase logical rules for emotions strikes me as an oxymoron.
  2. That does not look like a cat.
  3. I'd rather have interactions with my own very real cat, thank you very much.
