Objectives « Emotional contagion » E. Hatfield –Imitation-Synchronization => Attachment –Attachment => Imitation-Synchronization –Emotional-Transfer When and who imitating ? –Synchronization depends on affective bonds –Synchronization modifies the affective bonds How to start the cycle?
Building Affective Links Approach –Bottom-up => as simple as possible –Per-ac => no world representation –Biologically inspired Consequences –Perception and action encoded at the same level –The goal is not to do an action but to have a perception –We will use « desired perception »
Adaptation Based on Affective Interaction Notion of comfort –User contact on the side of the robot increases the comfort –The comfort is decreasing with the time –The beep frequency represent the discomfort What for ? –Faster learning when there is more comfort
« Perceptual Learning » Based on Affective Interaction
Conclusion and Perspective Affective links without symbolic representation –Interesting similarities with biology –Affective bonds depending on the interaction –‘‘perceptual learning’’ Bateson, 1966 Perspectives –Using different classes of ‘‘Desired Perception’’ –Imitating and synchronizing depending on the affect –The facility to synchronize part of the comfort
