Posted 12 Oct 2007 at 11:35 UTC by mwaibel Share This

Emotions are fundamental for humans, for most of us even more so than rational thought. But what about robots? The latest Talking Robots episode talks to Michael Arbib about robot brains and emotions. With over 322 scholarly articles and author or editor of nearly 40 books in computer science as well as the biological sciences, neuroscience and psychology, Michael is a key figure linking computer scientists and engineers to neuroscience and the cognitive sciences. First of all, what is an emotion? What is the role of mirror neurons for emotions like empathy, and for actions like arm movement? And how can they help us in using (robot) vision to control actions? Hope you enjoy the brief glimpse offered by Michael into this very exciting intersection of research fields as much as I do!
