Building a computational model of emotion based on parallel processes and resource management

Stefan Rank

Dramatic story-worlds require software agents with emotional competences. I propose as building blocks for a computational model of emotion explicitly bounded resources and concurrently active processes acquiring and using the resources. A set of objectives for the implementation of such a model is presented based on limitations identified in earlier approaches towards the same goal. The proposed method for achieving these objectives involves incremental modelling of a growing collection of emotional episodes, with a clear delineation of technically necessary simplifications.

Keywords: affective agent architectures, computational modelling, embodiment, design criteria
