Emotional Machines. Presented by Chittha Ranjani Kalluri. Why Can’t…. We have a thinking computer? A machine that performs about a million floating-point operations per second understand the meaning of shapes?

The above are some of the questions facing computer designers and others who are constantly striving to build more and more ‘intelligent’ machines.
According to en.wikipedia.org:
“Intelligence is a general mental capability that involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend ideas and language, and learn.”
In psychology and common use, emotion is the language of a person's internal state of being, normally based in or tied to their internal (physical) and external (social) sensory feeling. Love, hate, courage, fear, joy, and sadness can all be described in both psychological and physiological terms.
The question is not whether intelligent machines can have emotions, but whether machines can be intelligent without any emotions.
