Emotions, Age, and Gender Based Cognitive Skills Calculations

Sadique Ahmad, Awais Adnan, Gulnawar Khan, and Nasir Mehmood
Abstract—Cognitive skills play an important role in performance of any individual. Knowing the level of cognitive skill, we can predict ones performance in many fields. This expected performance, using cognitive tools, can be very helpful especially for critical tasks like fire-fighting, driving of public transport, flying, and mining etc. Many researchers, from philosophy and psychology, have established relationship between expected cognitive skills and different mental and physical conditions like emotional stability, stress, tiredness, state of angriness. Different experiments were carried out to estimate the factors that can affect these skills, for both the genders, male and female. These experiments conclude that cognitive ability can be affected largely by the some basic human emotions i.e. happiness, sadness, anger, fear, disgust, surprise, and stress. However, no formal formulation could be established to calculate the expected cognitive skills by measuring these basic emotions simultaneously. Now we have many well defined methods in computer sciences, both supervised and un-supervised, that can be used to establish such complex relationships. Basic aim of this position paper is to present the idea of our propose experiment and the expected outcome. We have also discussed finding of our initial experiment in this paper and the equation developed from this experiment.

Index Terms—Cognitive skills, human emotion, data mining, association rule mining.
