What People are Saying About This

Michael Wooldridge

Emotional machines may seem to be the stuff of fantasy. But mechanisms for understanding and exhibiting emotions may be essential if we are to improve the way that computers and humans interact. This comprehensive collection of essays presents the state of the art on this fascinating and challenging research topic. I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how and why computers will eventually understand what it feels like to have a bad day at the office.

The problem of explaining the functional basis of feeling is undoubtedly the hardest (some think insoluble) problem of cognitive science. Whether they succeed or fail, it is undeniable that the contributors to this volume are facing this problem head-on.
