Currently, there are no machines with emotions that influence their reasoning, perception and decision-making abilities to the degree that emotions affect human behaviour in these areas. This could be for two reasons. Firstly, emotions have traditionally been broadly defined and no discrete categorization had been formulated, and secondly, emotions have been viewed as opposing logic, the very basis for computational machines, and as a disruption to rational reasoning and function. It is the very contrasting evidence in recent research that has seen a renewed enthusiasm into emotional research. The role of emotion in rational human behaviour may have a larger impact on cognitive processes than first thought. In this paper, we define emotions and discuss the importance that they will have on artificial intelligences of the future.
