Deliverable WP5 D5.1: Critical Comparison of Architectures Modelling Motivation and Emotions
This deliverable provides an outline of the reciprocal relations between emotion and anticipation, with a strong emphasis on emotion. We begin by presenting the current state of the study of emotion in three fields: philosophy of mind, affective neuroscience, and psychology. We then select a few representative architectures and application models from the field of affective computing, and presented them in some detail. From our research, it is clear that most of the current systems do not deal with the concept of anticipation explicitly, although most support planning capabilities. Anticipation is a novel approach to Affective Computing that (at the least) will provide with a valuable fresh insight on affective architectures, that appear to have somewhat stagnated in a pragmatic shallowness. Afterwards, we present the concept of an anticipatory system, and briefly explained its value when confronted with the universality of reactive systems. Finally, two affective anticipatory approaches are presented. The former approach is a high-level more formal approach, oriented towards the integration of anticipatory-based emotions in BDI models. The latter is a sub-symbolic lower level approach. Both of them are two novel anticipation-based approaches in the field of Affective Computing.

Anticipatory Cognitive Science is a research field that ensembles artificial intelligence, biology, psychology, neurology, engineering and philosophy in order to build anticipatory cognitive systems that are able to face human tasks with the same anticipatory capabilities and performance. In deep: Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology. Its intellectual origins are in the mid-1950s when researchers in several fields began to develop theories of mind based on complex representations and computational procedures. Its organizational origins are in the mid-1970s when the Cognitive Science Society was formed and the journal Cognitive Science began. Since then, more than sixty universities in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia have established cognitive science programs, and many others have instituted courses in cognitive science.
