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)
Emotions are one of the important unconscious mechanisms that influence human behaviors, attentions, and decision making. The emotion process helps to determine how humans perceive their internal status and needs in order to form consciousness of an individual. Emotions have been studied from multidisciplinary perspectives and covered a wide range of(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)
There are a great variety of theoretical models of cognition whose main purpose is to explain the inner workings of the human brain. Researchers from areas such as neuroscience, psychology, and physiology have proposed these models. Nevertheless, most of these models are based on empirical studies and on experiments with humans, primates, and rodents. In(More)
In areas such as psychology and neuroscience a common approach to study human behavior has been the development of theoretical models of cognition. In fields such as artificial intelligence, these cognitive models are usually translated into computational implementations and incorporated into the architectures of intelligent autonomous agents (AAs). The(More)
Computational models of emotions (CMEs) are software systems designed to synthesize the mechanisms of the human emotion process. They are included in cognitive agent architectures to endow Autonomous Agents (AAs) with abilities for the evaluation of emotional stimuli, the simulation and expression of emotional feelings, and the development of emotionally(More)
