Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a reaction based technology, and AI based extremely dynamic conversational chatbots are the demand of this age. We are using voice-based chatbots (Siri, Alexa, and Google Home) and native chatbots (Slack or Facebook Messenger) in our routine life. The next move of Artificial Intelligence is far ahead than what we already have on the floor, that is Emotional Intelligence. We feel good when people understand our emotions. Imagine a machine recognizes your mood and reacts accordingly.
By this paper we would like to open a discussion on the need ofBy this paper we would like to open a discussion on the need of Emotional Intelligence as a feature in machines interacting with humans. However, we restrain from making a statement about the need of emotional experience in machines. We argue that providing machines computable means for processing emotions is a practical need requiring implementation of a set of abilities included in the Emotional Intelligence Framework. We introduce our methods and present the results of some of the first experiments we performed in this matter.
When Angelica Lim bakes macaroons, she has her own kitchen helper, Naoki. Her assistant is only good at the repetitive tasks, like sifting flour, but he makes the job more fun. Naoki is very cute, just under two feet tall. He's white, mostly, with blue highlights, and has speakers where his ears should be. The little round circle of a mouth that gives him a surprised expression is actually a camera, and his eyes are infrared receivers and transmitters.
Sloman was one of the first in the AI community to write about the role of emotion in computing (Sloman and Croucher 1981), and I value his insight into theories of emotional and intelligent systems. Alas, Sloman's review dwells largely on some details related to unknown features of human emotion; hence, I don't think the review captures the flavor of the book. However, he does raise interesting points, as well as potential misunderstandings, both of which I am grateful for the opportunity to comment on. Sloman writes that I "welcome emotion detectors in a wide range of contexts and relationships, for example, teacher and pupil." This might sound innocuous, but its presumption of the existence of emotion detectors is not.
