Speaker: Hélder Bastos, LASIGE/DI-FCUL
Date: April 28, 12h

Abstract: Emotion is a very hard and complex subject, pointed by some as an evolutionary cognitive tool, that enables bounded-rationality even when risk must be assessed. Target of many fields of research like, among others, psychology and philosophy, it is within the development of neurosciences that emotion models gathers a more computational formulation. In this seminar there will be presented the ground ideas of my work and its current state, and show how emotional computation could be a path to the future of agents development.
