Abstract:A modular hybrid neural network architecture, called SHAME, for emotion learning is introduced. The system learns from annotated data how the emotional state is generated and changes due to internal and external stimuli. Part of the modular architecture is domain independent and part must be
adapted to the domain under consideration.
The generation and learning of emotions is based on the event appraisal model.
The architecture is implemented in a prototype consisting of agents trying to survive in a virtual world. An evaluation of this prototype shows that the architecture is capable of
generating natural emotions and furthermore that training of the neural network modules in the architecture is computationally feasible.
Keywords: hybrid neural systems, emotions, learning, agents.
