Description & Coverage
Description:

As humans interact more often and more intimately with computers, and as computational systems become an ever more important element of our society, playing roles in education, the production of culture and goods, and management, it is inevitable that we should seek to interact with these systems in ways that take advantage of our powerful emotional capabilities.

Creating Synthetic Emotions through Technological and Robotic Advancements compiles progressive research in the emerging and groundbreaking fields of artificial emotions, affective computing, and sociable robotics that allow humans to begin the once impossible-seeming task of interacting with robots, systems, devices, and agents. This landmark volume brings together expert international researchers to expound upon these topics as synthetic emotions move toward becoming a daily reality.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Affective Computing
  • Cognitive Science
  • Emotional computing
  • Engineering approaches to emotions
  • Evolutionary approaches to the mind
  • Humanoid Robotics
  • Language and emotions
  • Modeling artificial emotions
  • Sociable robotics
  • Synthetic Emotions
Reviews & Statements

Every published work contains rich and different approaches to artificial emotions. Somebody could think that this diversity could lead to a lack of agreement or that this is the example of the dominant confusion in this field. On the contrary, each contribution sheds light upon the multiple faces of the studies on synthetic emotions; all the authors, although not connected directly, contribute to the improvement of the understanding and implementation of synthetic emotions. This is a collective creation of knowledge in which all the involved researchers are designing the basis of a shared future independently.

For anyone who is forward-thinking, bold and just excited about opening up new frontiers, this is the book to read. Much is revealed in it that is new and unearthed through research.
