Great Chain of Agents: The Role of Metaphorical Representation of Agents in Conversational Crowdsourcing

Ji-Youn Jung, Sihang Qiu, Alessandro Bozzon, Ujwal Gadiraju
2022 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
We adopted Lakoff and Turner's 'Great Chain of Being' framework to systematically investigate the impact of using non-human metaphors to represent conversational agents on worker engagement in crowdsourcing  ...  Our findings bridge the gap of how users experience CAs with nonhuman metaphors in the context of conversational crowdsourcing.  ...  In this context of conversational crowdsourcing, it is exciting to study and better understand the role and potential of metaphorical representations of a conversational agent.  ...

Emotional Interaction between Artificial Companion Agents and the Elderly [article]

Xinjia Yu
2016 arXiv   pre-print
This model aims to use role as a key concept to analyse the demands from the elderly for functionalities from an emotional perspective in artificial companion agent designs and technologies.  ...  To address these functional research problems, we attempt to establish a model to guide artificial companion designers to meet the emotional needs of the elderly through fulfilling absent roles in their  ...  Paro as a successful representation of the latter category was developed in laboratory settings in 2003.  ...

Towards Explainable Social Agent Authoring tools: A case study on FAtiMA-Toolkit [article]

Manuel Guimarães, Joana Campos, Pedro A. Santos, João Dias, Rui Prada
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The deployment of Socially Intelligent Agents (SIAs) in learning environments has proven to have several advantages in different areas of application.  ...  In this paper we introduce the concept of Explainable Social Agent Authoring Tools with the goal of analysing if authoring tools for social agents are understandable and interpretable.  ...  In Ensemble, each agent has deep representation of the social state of the environment as well as the social models of other characters.  ...

Bridging Art and Science: Phenomenon-Driven Theorizing

Robert Wayne Gregory, University of Miami, USA, Ola Henfridsson, University of Miami, USA
2021 Journal of the AIS  
The model represents a balanced take on theory development and is useful for tempering the natural tendency in academia to drift toward the science of theorizing at the expense of the art of theorizing  ...  We present a model of phenomenon-driven theorizing that may guide researchers in bridging art and science as they engage in pure theory development.  ...  In one form of crowdsourcing ("tournament-based crowdsourcing"), each agent from the crowd self-selects to work on its own solution to the problem, and the best solution is chosen as the winning solution  ...

Human Computation: A Manifesto [chapter]

Pietro Michelucci
2013 Handbook of Human Computation  
In the first part of this chapter, we consider how Human Computation (HC), the study of humans as computational elements in a purposeful system, has already been helpful in solving problems.  ...  In the second part of this chapter, we examine the maturity of human computation as both a practice and a discipline.  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to express his enduring gratitude to each of the 116 contributors to this volume, who are collectively catalyzing the emergence of human computation as a discipline  ...

Creative Action at a Distance: A Conceptual Framework for Embodied Performance With Robotic Actors

Philipp Wicke, Tony Veale
2021 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
Theory and hypothesis are each grounded in empirical research, and aim to provide resources for other robotic studies of the creative use of movement and gestures.  ...  For the interpretation framework, we hypothesise that emotionally-grounded choices can inform acts of metaphor and blending, to elevate a scripted performance into a creative one.  ...  The result is a performative blend of the two enactments. B enacts its agent role in the insult while A enacts its patient role in the attack.  ...

Building Cognition: The Construction of Computational Representations for Scientific Discovery

Sanjay Chandrasekharan, Nancy J. Nersessian
2014 Cognitive Science  
We present a theoretical analysis of the cognitive roles such representations play, based on an ethnographic study of the building of computational models in a systems biology laboratory.  ...  The cognitive roles played by such computational representations in discovery are not well understood.  ...  We appreciate the helpful comments of the journal reviewers on two earlier versions, particularly David Landy, who sought an explanation of why we are using DC and an elaboration of what the new account  ...
