Google fires engineer who said AI tech has feelings

Quote
He found Lamda showed self-awareness and could hold conversations about religion, emotions and fears. This led him to believe that behind its impressive verbal skills might also lie a sentient mind.

His findings were dismissed by Google and he was placed on paid leave for violating the company's confidentiality policy.

Kudos to the coders if they can fool their colleagues.

Can drumming reconnect you to your colleagues?

Possibly. If they mean, connect fist to face.

Quote
Typically the instructors will join the participants at their office.

The performers are already on stage as the audience filters into the meeting room. A drum sits on each chair.

When people arrive, there are often feelings of negativity, stress ...

That's because their boss is the kind of git who thinks that organising team-building exercises demonstrates that he's got an MBA.

With you on that, Mark.  I mean, if there's extra time in the work day that isn't needed for work, let's all go home early instead of pretending to be musicians.
