Modelling social action for AI agents

Cristiano Castelfranchi
1998 Artificial Intelligence  
(b) Important levels of coordination and cooperation necessarily require minds and cognitive agents (beliefs, desires, intentions, etc.).  ...  The notion of social action (that is foundational for the notion of Agent) cannot be reduced to communication or modelled on the basis of communication.  ...  A special thank to Maria Miceli, Barbara Dunin-Keplicz, and Jaime Sichman for their comments.  ...

Game Theory Models for the Verification of the Collective Behaviour of Autonomous Cars

László Z. Varga
2017 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this position paper we discuss the multi-agent models and the verification results of the collective behaviour of autonomous cars.  ...  The conjecture is that intention aware adaptation with a constraint on simultaneous decision making has the potential to avoid unwanted behaviour.  ...  If agents can profit from misleading other agents with revealing false intention, then they might be tempted to exploit this.  ...

Exploring Zero-Shot Emergent Communication in Embodied Multi-Agent Populations [article]

Kalesha Bullard, Franziska Meier, Douwe Kiela, Joelle Pineau, Jakob Foerster
2020 arXiv   pre-print
One limitation of this setting is that it does not allow for the emergent protocols to generalize beyond the training partners.  ...  Effective communication is an important skill for enabling information exchange and cooperation in multi-agent settings.  ...  While these auxillary losses are design decisions, energy cost is an example of a universal (common-knowledge) cost grounded in the environment, which can be exploited for ZS communication.  ...

Multi-paradigm Coordination for MAS: Integrating Heterogeneous Coordination Approaches in MAS Technologies

Stefano Mariani, Andrea Omicini
2016 Workshop From Objects to Agents  
Open distributed multi-agent systems featuring autonomous components demand coordination mechanisms for both functional and non-functional properties.  ...  Heterogeneity of requirements regarding interaction means and paradigms, stemming from the diverse nature of components, should not affect the effectiveness of coordination.  ...  Intentions may be suspendedeither by the programmer or by the Jason reasoning enginefor a number of reasons-e.g. because the agent needs to wait for a message, or an environmental event.  ...

Dec-SGTS: Decentralized Sub-Goal Tree Search for Multi-Agent Coordination

Minglong Li, Zhongxuan Cai, Wenjing Yang, Lixia Wu, Yinghui Xu, Ji Wang
2021 AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Multi-agent coordination tends to benefit from efficient communication, where cooperation often happens based on exchanging information about what the agents intend to do, i.e. intention sharing.  ...  In this paper, we design a novel multi-agent coordination protocol based on subgoal intentions, defined as the probability distribution over feasible subgoal sequences.  ...  -047), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (No. 91948303, 91648204, 61803375, 62032024 and 12002380), and the National Science and Technology Major Project.  ...

Integrating objective & subjective coordination in multi-agent systems

Andrea Omicini, Alessandro Ricci, Mirko Viroli, Giovanni Rimassa
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '04  
In this paper we investigate such integration in the context of FIPA agents, aiming at exploiting the coordination services provided by TuCSoN coordination infrastructure.  ...  Subjective and Objective coordination can be integrated and exploited fruitfully in the same context.  ...  between the agent and its environment.  ...

"Mind Reading": How and for what?

Castelfranchi Cristiano
2019 Annals of Cognitive Science  
An efficient coordination-in humans but also in artificial agents-exploits (or should exploit) not only the mere 'observation' of such agents, but more precisely this form of silent communication (which  ...  The message-sending paradigm dominating CSCW, MAS, HCI, and H-Robot-I, is here criticized; necessity and advantages of BIC for coordination and cooperation are presented.  ...  Any kind of communication exploits some environmental 'channel' and some physical outcome of the act; any communication is "through the environment"! This cannot be the right distinction.  ...

A Survey of Research in Distributed, Continual Planning

Marie desJardins, Edmund H. Durfee, Charles L. Ortiz Jr., Michael Wolverton

We argue that developing DCP systems will be necessary for planning applications to be successful in these environments.  ...  In this article, we describe a new paradigm for planning in complex, dynamic environments, which we term distributed, continual planning (DCP).  ...  Coordination For a group of cooperative distributed planners to reach a state in which the individual subplans jointly achieve the common objectives, the agents must coordinate their decision making.  ...
