Mirror neurons: The most hyped concept in neuroscience?

Recommended Posts

The discovery of mirror neurons (twenty years ago) in the brain on macaque monkeys is controversial.


In particular, the biological mecanism of "shared neural activations" has been proposed as a model to understand the concept of "cognitive empathy".


What if human consciousness can sense the mental states of others by expressing empathy? Can we teach artificial intelligence to share empathy with humans?

I'm fairly certain this supercomputer doesn't "understand" the emotionality of empathy.


We humans have this capacity to learn to speak chinese in our infancy. Artificial intelligence is the product of years of research and development but still lack the capacity to express shared feelings.
