Comparability is Key to Assess Affective Architectures

Stefan Rank, Paolo Petta

Current research on affective architectures for situated agents is fragmented into modelling aspects of emotion for specific purposes. To improve comparability of different architectures, we propose an approach that comprises the analysis of both, the niche space of target scenarios and the design space of architectures for autonomous agents. In this paper we focus on the niche space, and illustrate how the emotional phenomena that may occur in scenarios can be used to contextualise the investigation of functional roles of emotion within and across agents.

Keywords: cognitive appraisal theories of emotion, situated agent, emotion, agent architectures, scenarios
