Emotions--The Missing Link?

Rodrigo Ventura, Luis Custodio, and Carlos Pinto-Ferreira

In this paper we present and discuss a conceptual framework to design and construct emotion-based agents. We hypothesize that these agents exhibit a sensori-motor intelligence capable of providing them competence to cope with real, aggressive, and unpredictable environments. We sustain that such intelligence -- based on a structured pictoric knowledge representation -- can bridge the gap between purely reactive agents and complex, logic-based, reasoning systems.
