Modelling Embodied Appraisal in Humanoids: Grounding PAD space for Augmented Autonomy
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the Workshop on Standards in Emotion Modeling, 2011, 2011Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
A computational emotion architecture is presented which grounds an aspect of an appraisal theoretic architecture in energy related processes. The incorporation of an energy constraint on emotional-cognitive behaviour allows greater potential for autonomous agency when implemented on a physical (NAO) robot platform. In this paper we present an algorithm that enables metabolic grounding of the arousal component of the PAD emotion space used in the architecture. We describe an exemplar problem that abstracts variables and performance criteria relevant to service robotics applications. Future work on further integration based on neurobiological grounding is discussed as well as means by which the exemplar scenario may be scaled up to more realistic service robotics based scenarios.
