Artificial Emotional Intelligence?

Ray Kurzweil
Ray Kurzweil is a Engineering Director at Google, and he was asked about natural language in the context of search. He has a bold prediction:

“…I’ve had a consistent date of 2029 for that vision. And that doesn’t just mean logical intelligence. It means emotional intelligence, being funny, getting the joke, being sexy, being loving, understanding human emotion. That’s actually the most complex thing we do. That is what separates computers and humans today. I believe that gap will close by 2029.”

Would artificial emotional intelligence impact human emotional intelligence in a positive way? Please comment with your thoughts.
