Emotional Intelligence; A Flaw In Robots

[Full Text]



Zahoor Ahmad Lone, Dr Shah Alam



Key words; Emotional intelligence, Artificial intelligence, Cognition, Neuroscience, Human Behavior, Machine,



Abstract: Cognitive neuroscientists and psychological researches are progressively showing how emotions play a crucial role in cognitive processes. Gradually, this knowledge is being used in artificial intelligence and artificial life areas in simulation and cognitive processes modeling. However, theoretical aspects of emotions to be employed in computational systems projects are barely discussed and touched emotional intelligence. The mystery of emotional intelligence has enthralled human beings over the years on the every dimension of life. Can human beings create machines that can be emotionally intelligent? This paper tries to present an informal overview of the robotic intelligence and how they are lagging behind in emotional intelligence.
