It’s a scientific point of contention whether dogs can feel guilt.
What do you think?
I’m sure there would be similar questions raised about this AlphaBot.
But looking guilty is another matter. That’s definitely in its programming, & I suspect dogs’ & humans’ too.
Speaking of which, I’m feeling a bit guilty for taking extra shortcuts this week (I cadged a bunch of gradients & blends— and even an eye— from CuriosityBot for this one) but I’d feel even more guilty if I missed my work deadlines, so something had to give!
