A treatment of emotion as a means of meta-optimisation in cognitive systems is presented, drawing upon research in neuroscience and reinforcement learning. In particular, emotion is motivated and explained against the background of the free-energy principle and the Bayesian brain hypothesis, from the perspective of appraisal theory. Various implications of these models are examined in the context of reinforcement learning through a review of recent research. Based on the informationprocessing… CONTINUE READING
