Seminar in Neuroinformatics 5: Emotion in Machines and Humans

Articles proposed for presentation

(3rd and 4th period in 2014/15)

The bolded articles are a must.

The categories are in random order, except that the first couple of categories (general models and theories) will be considered in the first presentations.

The list may still change, and you can also propose articles yourself.
