Human Expression Handbook for Artificial Intelligence, Book One

Opportunities for photographic play come about me and sometimes, fuse with my Imagination. Currently, I have been thinking much about the wonder of interplanetary colonisation to Mars and the reality of Artificial Intelligence having a place in daily life. Although General Intelligence scares me, I like to think that we won't meet our fates from the bots we create.. exterminate! exterminate! but rather, teach them in a nurturing way. Idealistic, I know. I thought about this when I made the following series. How can we teach artificial intelligence emotional empathy? First, they must begin to understand nuances of human expression.
