Artykuł prezentuje cybernetyczne podejście do zagadnienia modelowania ludzkich emocji, oparte na psychologicznych teoriach (ocennej i somatycznej). Opracowany model przeznaczony jest do integracji z Inteligentnym Systemem Decyzyjnym - IDS. Może być on używany jako silnik aplikacji lub jako system sterowania niezależnego urządzenia, np. robota autonomicznego.

xEmotion - a computational model of emotions dedicated to intelligent decision-making systems


The paper presents a cybernetic approach to the task of modelling human emotions based on the psychology theories (both appraisal and somatic theories are applied). The proposed system is designed for integration into an intelligent system of decision-making - IDS. It can, for instance, be used as an application engine, as well as, a control system in autonomous unit.
