2020 arXiv   pre-print
To address this, we propose a framework for training agents to negotiate and form teams using deep reinforcement learning.  ...  We evaluate our approach on both non-spatial and spatially extended team-formation negotiation environments, demonstrating that our agents beat hand-crafted bots and reach negotiation outcomes consistent  ...  Some previous work in multi-agent (deep) reinforcement learning for negotiation has cast the problem as one of communication, rather than team formation (e.g.  ...
