It is interesting to admit that emotions play an important role in rational decision making and other sensible activities, though the emotional factor is easy to be naturally ignored by scientists when they model rational and cognitive human activities. Picard uses the rationale to found the affective computing theory that aims to make computing more intelligent via embedding the factor of emotions. She also pointed out it is a huge challenge for a computer to recognize human’s emotions without verbal communication, but after an extended period of observation with aid of sensors, the computer is able to recognize 80% accuracy of human emotions. This result urges us to move further to explore the possibility of implementing the real-time system for recognizing and reacting instantly within the narrative frame and context.
