Emotion & Design

Fall 2002 - CS 495-0-24


Advanced Graduate Seminar

Course Description:  Applications of new theories of emotion to the construction of artificial systems and devices. The course covers theories of emotion and the role of emotion in intelligent behavior and how these theories might be applied to design. This leads to three themes: I - The design of products that are emotionally satisfying and effective; II - The design of products that can sense human emotion and respond appropriately ("Affective Computing"); III - the design of autonomous systems that have emotions (e.g., robots, game characters, and software agents).
