Interesting Keith. And enlightening.

I am thinking of a framework for moral AI system.
And I must confess I have never even consider!! to put humor
in my design.

I wonder if there is any studies/paper on the utility and necessity
of humor. I will do some search I think.
Since I am a programmer, I got worry when you mention
"loops". ^^
