Humor is probably a uniquely human characteristic, here humor is defined as A sudden falsification of perceived threat. The falsification presumes the perception of a lie, humans can recognize a lie, animals maybe not.

US Patent #7644060 issued on Jan. 5, 2010
An artificial psychology dialog player is a software program that picks a sentence line from a repertoire according to probabilistic rules and artificial personality states. The model of personality has four motivational dimensions, one of which (the emotions) is always paired with one of the remaining three (feeding, sociosexual and parenting motivations); each pair is identified with a stage of human age.

The purpose is to confirm the humor/age link and to seek humor/personality link in order to support a patent application.
A humor appreciation internet survey with 40 humor lines and 20/50 Big 5 (B5) personality items ran for the span of 2008. The humor/age link of the previous survey was confirmed and evidence was found that humor scores are correlated mainly with the emotional stability factor of the B5, while cognitive scores (differential) are linked with the remaining four cognitive factors. The correlation coefficients were too small to show specifics of factor links it was thought hat this is due to the small number of participants.

The purpose is to explore the statistical basis for a possible patent application based on the 4D model.
Two humor appreciation internet surveys ran in 2007, the humor lines were interpreted according to the 4D model and the scores analyzed against age and gender variation. The analysis supported age prediction with statistical significance but no significant gender difference. The statistics in effect provided initial validation.

To describe a hypothesis of personality structure where the dimensions derived by factor analysis can be interpreted in dual cognitive and motivational context.
Comparing the descriptions of the four drives (4D) with the dimensions of some well known personality models reveals a more complex structure than the simple two dimensional tables shows. The novelty is to interpret in two contexts: cognition and motivation, some dimensions appear to be referenced in a cognitive manner, others in motivational manner and the remaining seem mixed or rotated between the two.

To explain an intuitive rationale behind linking humor type preference to post adulthood age.
Humans are considered mature and accountable usually at age 18 yet their behavior keeps developing afterwards. Post adulthood age related behavioral development cannot be attributed to cognition otherwise it would be a legal issue, e.g. a systematic factor in determining the guilt or innocence beyond adulthood. Behavioral development has to be attributed to motivation.

The purpose is to present arguments that support the duality of cognition and motivation
Cognition alone cannot mimic human behavior; not only because cognition is static but also because cognition requires motivation in order to define its context.

Refereed paper by Kadri, F.L. and Duncan, I.J.,
published in Behavioural Processes v.33 (1995) pp. 273-288
To propose a mathematically rigorous dynamic nonlinear model of motivation combining priming and homeostatic mechanisms.
Minimum recommended background:
1- Working knowledge of Laplace Transforms
2- Basic knowledge of Multidimensional Laplace Transform (MLT) techniques, see for example chapters 1 to 7 in book: Schetzen, M, "The Volterra and Wiener Theories of Nonlinear Systems", Wiley, New York 1980. Continue reading "A New Nonlinear Model of Mechanism of Motivation" »

Initial findings were reported as: Barn Owls use ITD's as Elevation Cues, Animal Behavior Society (NERABS) Meeting, Univ. of New Hampshire, Northampton, MA 1994.
Barn owls have asymmetrical ears and can locate the sound of prey horizontally and vertically in total darkness. Current research since the 1970's believes that horizontal location cues came from time and vertical from intensity differences as sensed by the owl's ears. In 1994 I challenged the view that intensity differences played any part in sound location and reported statistical evidence that points to time differences as the cues to both horizontal and vertical locations. Article submission for publication in a peer review journal was not accepted. Continue reading "Sound Location in the Barn Owl" »
