Abstract for the Orthogonal Model of Emotions

Well, let's try some science! I decided to write up my experiments like an experiment. This "abstract," however, is pretty specific. It's not the same as the abstract for the patent application regarding the systems, method, and process, but it covers the same idea.

The Orthogonal Model of Emotions is a mathematical construct built from non-euclidean dimensions differentiating mental states processed as feelings. When represented as vectors based on a nonverbal theory of mind defined by abductive reasoning, emotions are machine-translatable in addition to being human-understandable. The model represents a theory of mind built on dimensions of subjectivity, relativity, and generativity that are not enumerated but conceptual. In this experiment, emotion clusters were uniquely mapped in three dimensions representing the ontologically experiential definitions of trust, happiness, sadness, fear/anxiety, anger, guilt/shame, and envy/jealousy. The clusters were then linearly mapped along an additional dimension of acceptance from the highest level of acceptance, trust, to the lowest, envy/jealousy. Within each cluster, training data for statistical ordinal regression was taxonomically organized along a dimension of clarity for the purpose of machine-categorization. The training data was algorithmically generated to represent ontologically transitive statements as the basic semantic units for each emotion cluster. Validation was performed by the iOS app “Cogsworth” using a text classifier for discerning one of the seven emotional clusters and associated sentiment from input text. The resulting one hundred percent validation in full regression testing of the training data coincided with results of 99% accuracy using MaxEnt regression validation. As was shown, any mental state can be processed as an emotion, as long as it can be represented using the Orthogonal Model of Emotions. In a culmination of the first axiom of computer science attributed to the Lady Lovelace, Augusta Ada King, this model implies that emotions can be processed as symbols manipulated according to rules. Further, the next Turing test may soon question whether a computer can think of a person as a person like a person using a mathematical theory of mind.
