Computation of emotions in man and machines

This 2 day meeting will take place on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 April 2009. For more information and to register, please visit royalsociety.org/events.

Charles Darwin highlighted the importance of emotional expression as part of human communication. Advances in computer technology now allow machines to recognise and express emotions, paving the way for improved human-computer and human-human communications. This meeting will present recent advances in neuroscience, theories of emotion and effect, their embodiment in computational systems, the implications for general communications, and broader applications.
