Compound effects of expectations and actual behaviors in human-agent interaction: Experimental investigation using the Ultimatum Game

  title={Compound effects of expectations and actual behaviors in human-agent interaction: Experimental investigation using the Ultimatum Game},
  author={Yugo Hayashi and Ryo Okada},
  journal={Cognitive Science},
This study investigated how the expectations of others (i.e., top-down processes) and actual perceived behavior (i.e., bottom-up processes) influence negotiations during humanagent interactions. Participants took part in several sessions of the ultimatum game; we investigated the bargaining strategies directed toward the computer agent.

Reputations and Fairness in Bargaining - Experimental Evidence from a Repeated Ultimatum Game With Fixed Opponents

The results of Ultimatum Game experiments are often quoted as evidence for the role of fairness in bargaining or in economic behaviour more generally. This paper argues that the observed fairness

A Prisoner's Dilemma Experiment on Cooperation With People and Human-Like Computers

The authors investigated basic properties of social exchange and interaction with technology in an experiment on cooperation with a human-like computer partner or a real human partner. Talking with a

The private rejection of unfair offers and emotional commitment

The rejection of unfair offers that increases inequity cannot be explained by the social preference for inequity aversion or reciprocity; however, it does provide support for the model of emotion as a commitment device.

Can computer personalities be human personalities?

The claim that computer personalities can be human personalities was tested by demonstrating that (1) computer personalities can be easily created using a minimal set of cues, and (2) that people

Agency Effects in Human–Computer Interaction

The studies presented in this article explore a human-centered conceptualization of agents and agency based on the observation that people attribute agency to sufficiently complex interactive systems and suggest that agency effects operate in desktop computing environments.

Tit for tat in heterogeneous populations

It is found that a small fraction of TFT players is essential for the emergence of reciprocation in a heterogeneous population, but only paves the way for a more generous strategy.

A Theory of Fairness, Competition and Cooperation

There is strong evidence that people exploit their bargaining power in competitive markets but not in bilateral bargaining situations. There is also strong evidence that people exploit free-riding
