2017 arXiv   pre-print
Robots interacting with the physical world plan with models of physics. We advocate that robots interacting with people need to plan with models of cognition.  ...  It starts from a general game-theoretic formulation of interaction, and analyzes how different approximations result in different useful coordination behaviors for the robot during its interaction with  ...  The robot can leverage its actions' influence on the person to actively gather information about their internal reward parameters. What If the Human Knows the Robot is Learning?.  ...
