The development of intelligent systems has been a significant research goal for many years, and has proceeded from a number perspectives. We briefly review three of the most influential approaches, namely those derived from symbolic logic, from statistical models, and from the study of embodied agents. We then focus on the role of emotion in cognition, and review several computational models of emotions. These models raise a number of issues on the role of emotions in behavior, and show great promise to extend the capabilities of artificial intelligence.
