Artificial Psychology

Posted 16 December 2015 - 08:37 AM

I came across this wiki page a while ago - check it out (it's really short): https://en.wikipedia...cial_psychology

This is the closest thing I've ever found to what I'm looking for. I'm wondering whether anyone has ever come across code or data models that are meant to simulate the human mind/thoughts/emotions in some way, but with strong ties to modern psychology. Bit of wild card, but hey.

Certainly - change the tab order on a product and watch the anger flow!

ROFL! On a slight tangent, we were commiserating last week that our Helpdesk staff would fail the Turing test based on the (very poor) experience we had through email, IM, and on the phone (ack!).

Well, this is kind of what AI was about, back when people were interested in AI. But that doesn't seem to be very interesting to anyone today, so I'm afraid you're living in the wrong times. But check out Marvin Minsky and Patrick Winston and guys like that. That was exactly the question they were after.
