RAIRAN ANTOLINES, José Danilo. Definition of an emotion-based controller for dynamical systems. Tecnura [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.33, pp.12-22. ISSN 0123-921X.

An enormous number of solutions have been proposed from the field of artificial intelligence in order to endow machines with the ability to make plans without human guidance. In this paper, we suggest emulated emotions to endow machines with the skills to make human-like decisions. The model is described using dynamical systems. Emotional states are defined in terms of the difference between a reference model and the trajectories of the system. For example, calmness is defined as the ideal emotional state, where there is agreement between the state of the system and the reference model. Finally, a basic architecture for this kind of emotional-based controller is provided together with some experimental results that illustrate its use.

Keywords : control; decision-making processes; emotions; nonlinear systems.
