RuCCS Colloquia

Building Robots with Emotional Intelligence
Professor Angelica Lim
Simon Fraser University, The School of Computing Science

How might we teach a robot what it means to feel? In this talk, I will discuss experiments in defining intelligence, grounding and authenticity, with regards to emotions and embodiment in robots. We will take a close look at empathy in robots and humans, and I will give examples about how we can use developmental psychology and neuroscience findings to implement new models for robot intelligence. Humanoid robotics provides an avenue to integrate fields of perception such as vision and sound along with actuation, and we will also discuss the creation of coherent models in the context of cross-modal emotion in music, movement and voice.
