Emotion-Driven Reinforcement Learning

  title={Emotion-Driven Reinforcement Learning},
  author={Robert P. Marinier and John E. Laird and laird rmarinie},
Existing computational models of emotion are primarily concerned with creating more realistic agents, with recent efforts looking into matching human data, including qualitative emotional responses and dynamics. In this paper, our work focuses on the functional benefits of emotion in a cognitive system where emotional feedback helps drive reinforcement learning. Our system is an integration of our emotion theory with Soar, an independently-motivated cognitive architecture.
