Description & Coverage
Description:

Decades of scientific research on neurophysiology have proven emotions are not simply a minor aspect of human activity, but rather a fundamental one.

The Handbook of Research on Synthetic Emotions and Sociable Robotics: New Applications in Affective Computing and Artificial Intelligence focuses on the integration of emotions into artificial environments such as computers and robotics. Written by an international collaboration of experts within the field, this Handbook of Research covers topics such as emotion simulation and emotion synthetic development.

Coverage:

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

  • Affective computing
  • Agent based computational economics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Automatic detection of emotions
  • Autonomous cognitive systems
  • Emotional memory and adaptive personalities
  • Emotional modeling
  • Facial expression analysis
  • Goal and task selection for social robots
  • Personality and emotions in robotics
  • Synthetic Emotions
Reviews & Statements

The research in this field is not only important to develop better computer applications which are more able to communicate with humans or fulfill their tasks, but also argue that synthetic emotions can help neuroscience or cognitive psychology to test their models.

– Jordi Vallverdú, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain

The Handbook of Research on Sythetic Emotions and Sociable Robotics provides a timely snapshot of research at the leading edge of a young and exciting field. This handbook surveys the latest research in affective computing and emotional robotics in a succinct and accessible manner.
