Abstract

Emotions are a fundamental component in human experience, cognition, perception, learning and communication. In this paper we explore how the use of Common Sense Computing can significantly enhance computers’ emotional intelligence i.e. their capability of perceiving and expressing emotions, to allow machines to make more human-like decisions and improve the human-computer interaction.
