Generating animation content can be tedious and result in " messed-up " code. We present a Java API that can be used for generating AnimalScript-based animations. It was designed to be extendable to other output formats, such as SVG or other scripting languages. Apart from describing the use of the API, we also show a concrete example that was generated(More)
Computational models of the transmission of cultural information usually neglect that cultural transmission between individuals occurs mainly as a consequence of complex social interactions. We analyze the requirements for a computational model of a social psychological theory of cultural transmission, a theory which postulates that actors in a joint(More)

Within service-oriented architectures, components need to discover and interact with suitable services, which in turn can be mapped to particular subtasks. Similarly, in online social communities users may wish to discover information related to a particular interest that matches their personal preferences. These tasks are difficult when the number of(More)
The complexity of reinforcement learning problems grows exponentially with the size of the state space, which renders realistic cases unsolvable and underlines the need for guidance. This thesis studies a hybrid agent architecture, in which the top-level module reuses temporal knowledge in the form of plans that it extracts from a concurrently executing(More)
According to Clark's seminal work on common ground and grounding, participants collaborating in a joint activity rely on their shared information, known as common ground, to perform that activity successfully, and continually align and augment this information during their collaboration. Similarly, teams of human and artificial agents require common ground(More)
