It has been recognized that human behavior is an observable consequence of the interactions between cognitive and affective functions. This perception has motivated the study of human emotions in disciplines such as psychology and neuroscience and led to the formulation of a number of theories and models that attempt to explain the mechanisms underlying(More)
Machine ethics, also known as artificial morality, is a newly emerging field concerned with ensuring appropriate behavior of machines toward humans and other machines. In this article, we discuss the importance of machine ethics and present a computational model of ethical decision-making for autonomous agents. The proposed model implements a mechanism for(More)
In previous work we have developed a new hybrid approach for handling ill-shaped elements possibly appearing after cutting simulation meshes. In this work we compare the approach with existing standard techniques commonly employed to treat topological changes in deformation meshes. Our results indicate that the hybrid approach might be better suited for(More)
A great number of computational models of emotions (CMEs) have been developed to be included in, or as part of, cognitive agent architectures. These computational models have been designed to provide autonomous agents with appropriate mechanisms for the processing of emotional stimuli, the elicitation of synthetic emotions, and the generation of emotional(More)
This paper presents an approach for managing a synthetic model of culture based on the cognitive processes that allow humans to display culturally biased behaviors. We present cognitive agents as the underlying methodology for simulating such processes, introducing their main capabilities and using them to simulate the main processes involved in culture(More)
