The Morphofunctional Approach to Emotion

Engineering Morphofunctional Adaptation

Carlos Herrera

Place: Aula de Seminarios DISAM
Time: February 17, 2012 / 12:30-13:30

This seminar will present an approach to modeling emotions from a morphofunctional perspective. We will discuss the importance of morphology in robotics and describe some lines of research in this area. The idea of morphofunctionality will be introduced to describe robots that can change the functionality of its morphology in real-time for a better adaptation. We will connect this idea with the physiological changes in biological agents and with emotions. We will present an outline of a potential control system based on these principles and see how emotion can be modeled from this perspective, allowing us to clarify emotional phenomena that most models in robotics have simply neglected.
