When it comes to learning, cognition may not be enough. But neither is emotion. Your robot needs both according to a new research paper (PDF format) by Sandra Clara Gadanho of the Institute of Systems and Robotics in Protugal.

The robot learns faster when it derives an emotion of well-being from making choices that promote survival.
