Survey and Perspective on Social Emotions in Robotics

  title={Survey and Perspective on Social Emotions in Robotics},
  author={Chie Hieida and T. Nagai},
This study reviews research on social emotions in robotics. In robotics, emotions are pursued for a long duration, such as recognition, expression, and computational modeling of the basic mechanism behind them. Research has been promoted according to well-known psychological findings, such as category and dimension theories. Many studies have been based on these basic theories, addressing only basic emotions. However, social emotions, also called higher-level emotions, have been studied in… Expand

Emotion Modelling for Social Robotics Applications: A Review
This paper aims to provide a general overview of recent attempts to enable robots to recognize human emotions and interact properly and which applications are the most suitable for the robot to have such sensitivity. Expand
Emotion in reinforcement learning agents and robots: a survey
This article provides the first survey of computational models of emotion in reinforcement learning (RL) agents, and systematically addresses from what underlying dimensions emotions can be derived and how these can be modelled in RL-agents. Expand
Deep Emotion: A Computational Model of Emotion Using Deep Neural Networks
A model of emotions is proposed to elucidate the mechanism of emotions through the computational model and may help to build robots that can have empathy for humans, from the viewpoint of partner robots. Expand
Social functionality of human emotion.
This review surveys the research findings documenting the functions of emotion and links these to new discoveries about how emotion is accurately processed and transmitted and focuses specifically on emotion processing in dyads and groups. Expand
Designing Emotionally Expressive Robots: A Comparative Study on the Perception of Communication Modalities
It is suggested that emotion recognition accuracy varies as a function of the modality, and a higher degree of anthropomorphism does not necessarily lead to a higher level of recognition accuracy. Expand
Emotions as Cognitive-Affective-Somatic Hybrids
One way of studying emotions which is sensitive to cultural differences is to analyze the vocabularies people use to describe their own and other’s emotions, which can be called the localExpand
The Emotionally Intelligent Robot: Improving Socially-aware Human Prediction in Crowded Environments
This work estimates time-varying emotional behaviors of pedestrians from their faces and trajectories using a combination of Bayesianinference, CNN-based learning, and the PAD (Pleasure-ArousalDominance) model from psychology for emotion-aware navigation of a robot among pedestrians. Expand
Empathizing with emotional robot based on cognition reappraisal
Evidence is provided with acceptability, accuracy, richness, fluency, interestingness, friendliness and exaggeration that the robot with cognition and emotional control ability could be better accepted in the human-robot interaction (HRI). Expand

The present article proposes “affective developmental robotics,” which provides more authentic artificial empathy based on the concept of cognitive developmental robotics (hereafter, CDR), and a conceptual model of artificial empathy is proposed based on an ADR/CDR viewpoint. Expand
Cognitive Regulation and Emotion Modeling for Micro-expression
The experiment results show that this micro-expression cognitive emotional model is generally consistent with human brain emotional regulation mechanisms and efficiently improve robot’s emotion humanoid. Expand
