An unemotional analysis of robot emotions.

The book consists of a series of papers by various scientists on the subject of emotions. These papers are followed by another round of papers on how to set about instantiating emotions in robots. Whilst not all of the papers are in accordance with each other, they all possess a similar direction of travel. Emotions evolved in humans and made them fitter to operate both individually and also as members of human society. Emotions in robots do not need to simulate human emotions, even though there may be large areas of overlap. Rather, emotions in robots should make them fit to operate both as individual robots and also in a human world where smooth interaction with humans is of the essence.
