Emotionally Motivated Artificial Intelligence (EMAI) Model

Arvind Kumar, Rajiv Singh


We have proposed an emotion model for life-like agents with emotions and motivations. The model uses a mechanism that generates low-level instantaneous responses to external stimuli (coming from the real world and virtual worlds) and on emotions. A basic idea of the model is coming from the cognitive theory. The cognitive and emotional processes interact with each other. A multi- module architecture may be employed in order to carry out the interactions. The model also has a learning mechanism to diversify behavioural patterns. These features are effective in giving users the illusion of life. The proposed model can be applied to characters in a virtual world and show the results obtained from the experiments with users.
