Issues in the Design of Emotional Agents

Dolores Canamero

Why would we want/need to endow artificial agents with emotions? The main reasonable answer to this question seems to rely on what has been called the functional view of emotions, arising from (analytic) studies of natural systems. In this paper I examine to what extent this hypothesis can be applied to the (synthetic) investigation of artificial emotions, and some of the implications it has for the design of emotional agents.
