A Functional Perspective
This chapter examines robot emotions from a functional perspective. It suggests that emotion-inspired mechanisms can improve the way autonomous robots operate in a human environment with people, and can improve the ability of these robots to effectively achieve their own goals. It describes the design of Kismet, an anthropomorphic robot that can interact with a human in a social way. Kismet's architecture includes a cognitive system that is tightly coupled to a separate emotive system, and each is designed as interacting networks of specialists that are activated when specific conditions are met.
