Multi-layer affective computing model based on emotional psychology

  • Qingyuan ZhouEmail author


The factors and transforms of affective state were analyzed based on affective psychology theory. After that, a multi-layer affective decision model was proposed by establishing mapping relation among character, mood and motion. The model reflected the changes of mood and emotion spaces based on different characters. Experiment showed that human emotion characteristics accorded with theory and law, thus providing reference for modeling of human–computer interaction system.
