The Communicative Multiagent Team Decision Problem: Analyzing Teamwork Theories and Models
TLDR
A unified framework for multiagent teamwork, the COMmunicative Multiagent Team Decision Problem (COM-MTDP), which combines and extends existing multiagent theories, and provides a basis for the development of novel team coordination algorithms. Expand
Taming Decentralized POMDPs: Towards Efficient Policy Computation for Multiagent Settings
TLDR
A new class of locally optimal algorithms called Joint Equilibrium-based search for policies (JESP) is presented, and piece-wise linear and convexity (PWLC) properties are proved, thus taking steps towards developing algorithms for continuous belief states. Expand
PsychSim: Agent-based Modeling of Social Interactions and Influence
TLDR
PsychSim is presented, an implemented multiagent-based simulation tool for modeling interactions and influence among groups or individuals that has given the agents a theory of mind and provides them with a psychologically motivated mechanism for updating their beliefs in response to actions and messages of other agents. Expand
Trust calibration within a human-robot team: Comparing automatically generated explanations
TLDR
This work leverages existing agent algorithms to provide a domain-independent mechanism for robots to automatically generate explanations, and demonstrates that the added explanation capability led to improvement in transparency, trust, and team performance. Expand
Electric Elves: Applying Agent Technology to Support Human Organizations
TLDR
The underlying AI technologies that led to the success of Electric Elves are discussed, including technologies devoted to agenthuman interactions, agent coordination, accessing multiple heterogeneous information sources, dynamic assignment of organizational tasks, and deriving information about organization members. Expand
An Automated Teamwork Infrastructure for Heterogeneous Software Agents and Humans
TLDR
This work illustrates how the Teamcore architecture successfully addressed the challenges of agent integration in two application domains: simulated rehearsal of a military evacuation mission and facilitation of human collaboration. Expand
Why the elf acted autonomously: towards a theory of adjustable autonomy
TLDR
A mathematical model based on the notion of a transfer-of-control strategy, which potentially involves several transfer of control actions is introduced, which allows both analysis of previously reported implementations and guidance for the design of new implementations. Expand
Probabilistic State-Dependent Grammars for Plan Recognition
TLDR
Probabilistic state-dependent grammars (PSDGs) are introduced to represent an agent's plan-generation process to extend the range of plan-recognition domains for which practical probabilistic inference is possible, as illustrated by applications in traffic monitoring and air combat. Expand
Monitoring Teams by Overhearing: A Multi-Agent Plan-Recognition Approach
TLDR
This paper presents a non-intrusive approach to monitoring by overhearing, where the monitored team's state is inferred from team-members' routine communications, exchanged as part of their coordinated task execution, and observed (overheard) by the monitoring system. Expand
A prototype infrastructure for distributed robot-agent-person teams
TLDR
The goal is to create a proxy-based integration infrastructure where there is a beneficial symbiotic relationship between the proxies and the team members and to present two key new ideas to achieve this goal. Expand
