Summary: The encounter between emotion research and agent-based technology is multifaceted. One the one hand, results from emotion research start to serve as role model from nature, providing inspirations for technical design criteria for individual agents at the micro level and agent groups and societies at the macro level as well as the sophisticated linkages in between them. On the other hand, they are of immediate impact in important aspects of human-agent interaction and effective social cooperation between humans and conversational interfaces. In this broad survey, we offer an appetizing selection of results from different areas of emotion research.
