An Affective Agent Playing Tic-Tac-Toe as Part of a Healing Environment [chapter]

Matthijs Pontier, Ghazanfar Farooq Siddiqui
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As a pilot application for this purpose, this paper presents an affective agent playing tic-tac-toe with the user.  ...  There is a growing belief that the environment plays an important role in the healing process of patients, supported by empirical findings.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Tibor Bosse and Edwin Zwanenburg for their input to the paper, and Edwin Zwanenburg for implementing the game environment.  ...

We suggest a formal framework for automatic runtime control search. We present a catalog of control search algorithms for various settings of an execution environment.  ...  The considered environment properties are: (1) determinism-an environment can be either deterministic or probabilistic, (2) state reflection that allows observation of the current state of the environment  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Moshe Vardi and Doron Peled for reading and discussing the paper in early stages of the work.
