Clark Elliott, Affective Reasoning Papers
Institute for Applied Artificial Intelligence
There are twenty-four Affective Reasoning publications prior to
1998. These below have been formatted for the web.
College of Computing and Digital Media
- Clark Elliott (2013), "Morphing the Monster: Using
Emotionally-Intelligent Computer Characters to Produce new Versions of Mary
Shelley's Frankenstein," Working Draft for The Chicago
Colloquium on Digital Humanities & Computer Science, DePaul University,
December 5-8th, Chicago, IL.
- Clark Elliott (1992), `` The Affective
Reasoner: A Process Model of Emotions in a Multi-Agent System ''
The Institute for the Learning Sciences Technical Report #32, PhD Thesis,
Northwestern University. Discussion of the original manifestation of the
Affective Reasoner . 15,000 lines of LISP code (plus 10,000 lines of a port of Bareiss's Protos
), based on Ortony's Cognitive Structure of Emotion . More than 500 formal references
to this work in the academic literature.
- Clark Elliott (1997), `` I picked up Catapia and other stories: A
multimodal approach to expressivity for `emotionally intelligent'
agents, '' Proceedings of the First International Conference on Autonomous
Agents, Marina del Rey, CA, February 5th - 9th, 1997, pages 451-457.
Emotionally expressive computer agents compete favorably with a human actor
in conveying the details of complex emotion scenarios.
- Clark Elliott, Jacek Brzezinski, Sanjay Sheth, and Robert
Salvatoriello (1998) " Story-morphing in the Affective
Reasoning Paradigm: Generating Stories semi-automatically for use with
'emotionally intelligent' multimedia agents, " Proceedings of the Second
International Conference on Autonomous Agents, Minneapolis, MN, May, 1998,
pages 188-191. Using the Affective Reasoner we generate new
stories based on a schematic representation of the emotion structure in
- Clark Elliott and Greg Siegle, (1993), "Variables Influencing
the Intensity of Simulated Affective States." AAAI technical report for the
Spring Symposium on Reasoning about Mental States: Formal Theories and
Applications, 58-67. American Association for Artificial
Intelligence. Stanford University, March 23-25, 1993, Palo Alto, CA. We
identify twenty computable variables to be used in reasoning about
intensity in twenty-four categories of emotion.
- Clark Elliott (1999), " Why boys like motorcycles:
Using emotion theory to find structure in humorous stories, " EBAA '99
Workshop on Emotion-Based Agent Architectures, at the Autonomous Agents '99
Conference, Seattle, WA, May 1-5, 1999.

agents. In Proceedings of the IJCAI-97 Workshop on Animated Interface Agents: Making them Intelligent (1997),

automated tutoring systems. In proceedings of the AI-ED '97 Workshop on Pedagogical Agents, 5, 1997, Kobe, Japan.
- Clark Elliott (1997) Hunting for the Holy Grail with
Emotionally-Intelligent Virtual Actors , SIGART BUlletin, 9(1), 20-28.
ACM's Intelligence97 Agents, pages 40-47. Discussion of how the AR approaches three of the Holy Grail specified
by Danny Hillis in his keynote address to Autonomous Agents 97, combined
with a study showing expressive capabilities of the AR agents.

Problems in the Use of a Shallow Artificial Intelligence Model of
Personality and Emotion.
'' Proceedings of the Twelfth National Conference on Artificial
Intelligence, AAAI-94, Seattle, Washington, July 31st -- August 4th, 1994,
pages 9-15. We list seven major areas ripe for further research in the
Affective Reasoner paradigm.
