Abstract: A computer modulates among a number of states. Information stored in the computer memory includes predefined categories of an expected external stimulus. For example, the stimulus may include events and the categories include types of events. Also stored in memory are the predetermined states and likelihood functions for transitioning from one state to another. The states may represent emotional states, and the events represent emotion bearing events. Each type of event may have predefined emotional characteristics, with the likelihood functions being response to the occurrence of the events, the categorization of the events, and the characterization of the event's category.
