Computers are beginning to acquire the ability to express and recognize affect, and may soon be given the ability to " have emotions. " The essential role of emotion in both human cognition and perception, as demonstrated by recent neurological studies, indicates that affective computers should not only provide better performance in assisting humans, but also might enhance computers' abilities to make decisions. This paper presents and discusses key issues in " affective computing, " computing…

From Signals to Emotions: Applying Emotion Models to HM Affective Interactions
In 1997 Rosalind Picard defined Affective Computing as the «computing that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences emotions». Since then, research has developed to provide machines and
A Physiological Approach to Affective Computing
TLDR
Despite the role of emotion that has been shown in the literature, it is not clear the effect of emotion on the human computer interaction (HCI), so this approach is made with on-line data that were read from the sensors attached on the mouse.
Toward computers that recognize and respond to user emotion
TLDR
A system that responds to user frustration in a way that appears to help alleviate it is built and some potential ethical concerns and how they might be addressed are presented.
Toward an affect-sensitive multimodal human-computer interaction
TLDR
It is argued that next-generation human-computer interaction (HCI) designs need to include the essence of emotional intelligence - the ability to recognize a user's affective states- in order to become more human-like, more effective, and more efficient.
Affective Signal Processing (ASP): Unraveling the mystery of emotions
TLDR
This monograph shows that affective computing will become unstoppable, will determine the authors' relation with ICT and, as such, will reshape their lives.
Computation of emotions in man and machines
TLDR
This work considers how advances in psychology and technology relate to each other and how they can be brought together to influence future research in perception, attention, learning, memory, communication, decision-making and other applications.
Affective Intelligence: The Human Face of AI
TLDR
This chapter elaborates on the concepts related to affective computing, how these can be connected to measurable features via representation models and how they can be integrated into humancentric applications.
Affective Computing: SMART Interactions of Machines with Humans
TLDR
The literature review is showing that emotions may serve as a powerful vehicle for enhancing or inhibiting learning and there are optimistic expectations towards affective computing among researchers.
Computer Aided Emotional Fashion
Evaluation of Affective Computing Systems from a Dimensional Metaethical Position
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to situate the approach among other approaches in the computer ethics literature and to describe its methodology in a manner that practitioners can readily apply, a process for critiquing and improving affective computing systems.

TLDR
The present model describes 4 types of emotion-activating systems, 3 of which involve noncognitive information processing and the hierarchical organization of the systems for generating emotions provides an adaptive advantage.
