Automatic annotation of team actions in observations of embodied agents

Linus J. Luotsinen, Hans Fernlund, Ladislau Bölöni
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
Recognizing and annotating the occurrence of team actions in observations of embodied agents has applications in surveillance and in training of military or sport teams.  ...  The hand-crafting of these models is a difficult task of knowledge engineering, even in application domains where explicit, natural language descriptions of the team actions are available.  ...  The views and conclusions contained in this document are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as representing the official policies, either expressed or implied, of the Army Research Laboratory  ...

Towards Flexible Teamwork [article]

M. Tambe
1997 arXiv   pre-print
Our central hypothesis is that the key to such flexibility and reusability is providing agents with general models of teamwork.  ...  The basic building block of teamwork in STEAM is joint intentions (Cohen & Levesque, 1991b); teamwork in STEAM is based on agents' building up a (partial) hierarchy of joint intentions (this hierarchy  ...  This article is an extended version of a previous conference paper (Tambe, 1997a) .  ...

On being a teammate

1999 Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents - AGENTS '99  
E ective agent i n teractions in such domains raise some of most fundamental research c hallenges for agentbased systems, in teamwork, multi-agent learning and agent modeling.  ...  We compare the teams, and attempt to analyze and generalize the lessons learned. This analysis reveals several surprises, pointing out lessons for teamwork and for multi-agent learning.  ...  An agent in such domains must model other agents' behaviors, learn adapt from its interactions, form teams and act e ectively in a team, negotiate with other agents, and so on.  ...

Team Production, Endogenous Learning About Abilities and Career Concerns

Evangelia Chalioti
2015 Social Science Research Network  
This paper studies career concerns in teams where the support a worker receives depends on fellow team members'e¤ort and ability.  ...  In this setting, by exerting e¤ort and providing support, a worker can in ‡uence her own and her teammates'performances in order to bias the learning process in her favor.  ...  In team production models, the market only observes the team output and uses this (single) measure to infer the level of workers'abilities.  ...
