In this report the author describes a complex set of models and architectures that allow the embodiment of an emotionally intelligent robot in interacting with other humans or robots. The robot used for deploying these ideas and concepts is AIBO (a quadruped autonomous dog-like robot) made available by Sony.
The work that has been done has the somewhat difficult mission to propose a new cognitive model that allows reasoning with emotions for robots and in the same time to offer a prototype implementation.
This report has two focus-points: one on the personality model that has been developed in order to execute emotional reasoning and the second focus-point on the software that renders valuable the model by including it in a running prototype.
