Environmental effects on simulated emotional and moody agents

Joe Collenette, Katie Atkinson, Daan Bloembergen, Karl Tuyls
2017 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
Exploring simulated emotions and mood to inform the decision-making process in multi-agent systems allows us to explore in further detail how outside influences can have an effect on different strategies  ...  We expand and clarify aspects of how agents are affected by environmental differences. We show how emotional characters settle on an outcome without deviation by providing a formal proof.  ...  We examine whether the environment structure has the same effect on emotional agents as it does on non-emotional agents.  ...

Preface to the special issue: adaptive and learning agents

Daan Bloembergen, Tim Brys, Logan Yliniemi
2017 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
In addition, current research within the ALA community focusses on how agents can share experience with other agents, or how human operators can guide the learning process.  ...  While the development of a single learning agent may already present a serious challenge, current research frontiers also have a large focus on systems where multiple agents interact in a shared environment  ...  The third paper, Environmental Effects on Simulated Emotional and Moody Agents by Joe Collenette, Katie Atkinson, Daan Bloembergen, and Karl Tuyls, studies the effect that simulated emotions and mood have  ...

Surviving in a Hostile Multi-agent Environment: How Simple Affective States Can Aid in the Competition for Resources [chapter]

Matthias Scheutz
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The claim will be confirmed using results from experiments done in a simulation of a multi-agent environment, in which agents have to compete for resources in order to survive.  ...  In this paper, I will argue that agents with simple affective inner states (that can be interpreted as "hunger" and "mood") can have an advantage over agents without such states if these states are used  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Norman Pecoraro for discussing with me at length the various findings in animal behavior research on emotional/affective states and their influence on the overall  ...

Michael Mateas
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This report presents the research philosophy behind the Oz Project, a research group at CMU that has spent the last ten years studying believable agents and interactive drama.  ...  Believable agents are autonomous agents that exhibit rich personalities. Interactive dramas take place in virtual worlds inhabited by characters (believable agents) with whom an audience interacts.  ...  Early characters include Theresa, a moody expert on Greek mythology, and Angel, a helpful butler. From what I can tell, their agents are currently chatterbots.  ...
