The Affect Dilemma for Artificial Agents: Should We Develop Affective Artificial Agents?
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing
By Matthias Scheutz
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 424-433
Humans are deeply affective beings that expect other human-like agents to be sensitive to and express their own affect. Hence, complex artificial agents that are not capable of affective communication will inevitably cause humans harm, which suggests that ...

Found in: Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on
By Matthias Scheutz, Paul Schermerhorn
Issue Date:October 2003
pp. 378
This paper examines the tradeoffs between agents that can predict (and, therefore, take into account) other agent's actions and agents that act on their own without taking other agents' actions into account. A simple prediction mechanism allows agents to m...
