The Laboratory for Language and Emotion has been featured in an article in Wired.  The article poses the question can a computer fall in love?  Using the new movie Her as a reference point, the article questions if artificial intelligence is advanced enough to allow computers to feel love.  The article also approaches this topic from the perspective of embodied cognition asking if a body is required to feel emotions, such as love.  Lab director David Havas, Ph.D. was interviewed for his opinion on the subject and his responses from the interview are featured in the article.
