Cain, B. Contributor Kennedy, W.G. (editor) St. Amant, R. (editor) Reitter, D. (editor) Publication year 2013 Abstract There are numerous conceptual similarities between affective and rational decision making functions despite the differences between the emotional and cognitive systems. Aspects of emotion may be considered as a concurrent stream of information processing that is coupled with explicit, rational information processing. The advantage of the affective system is the increased speed with which previously gained knowledge is applied in decision making, although it may be accompanied by a speed-accuracy trade-off. Affect and the subsequent emotions may be conceptualized as goal oriented despite their non-rational reputation. Cognitive and human factors architectures may already form a convenient base for inclusion of emotion in operational decision making in this conceptualization, but many hurdles have to be taken, such as proper integration with other human factors, behaviour selection, avoiding unnecessary model complexity and exploiting re-usability of previous modeling efforts. This paper is intended to stimulate the discussion on architectures that could be adopted by researchers from different fields.
