What privacy concerns do you think might arise with emotional AI? I see all the applications for it, but im wondering if it can also expose too much of our private selves to the Tech gods.

When we call and check up on people out of care and kindness - what are we supposed to talk about? I feel like there isn’t much to say. Looking for ideas, tips.
