In this paper an emotional humanoid robot based on Latent Semantic Analysis is presented. The robot iscapable of interacting and entertain human users through the exhibition of spontaneous and non-repetitive emotionalbehaviours. The Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) paradigm, used to encode the semantics of words through a statisticalanalysis of a large corpus of text, is employed to build an emotional conceptual space that simulates the emotionalassociative capabilities of human beings, through “Latent Semantic Behaviours”. The LSA paradigm integrates traditionalknowledge representation and intuitive capabilities provided by geometric and sub-symbolic information modelling. Theeffectiveness of the proposed approach has been validated by implementing the system with the humanoid robot fromAldebaran, Nao.
