EMIR: emotion technology

The EMIR emotion system was developed to make it easy for software engineers to build programs that act as if they have human emotions. Applications include computer games, aircraft crew management training systems, the creation of "virtual humans", and online survey systems.
The example Mr. Guerin (CEO of I&A Research Inc) uses to illustrate the concept is the EMIRThermostat used to control the temperature of a refrigerator. The device is programmed in such a way that it "feels frustrated when the door is left open, happy and in-control when the temperature is in range, and a full range of emotions on situations in between."

Pricing, Agents, Perceived Value and the Internet

This article by Phillip G. Bradford, Herbert E. Brown and Paula M. Saunders, provides a overview about Internet buying. The Internet has changed the way people buy things. A pointed difference is the use of Internet auctions and bots. But, are these differences actually changing the role and function of price in the firm's marketing program? Are they possibly changing options for pricing, and perhaps even, the very notion of perceived value? Or in fact, does the new set of Internet pricing mechanisms merely require marketers to do what good marketers have always done, and that is to build customer-perceived value and use price to recapture it?
