In this meeting of the AI Seminar Series, Dr. Paolo Felli will talk about artificial social reasoning.
Title: Artificial social reasoning: computational mechanisms for
reasoning about others
Speaker:Dr. Paolo Felli
When: Tuesday, 19th August 11 AM - 12 NOON
Where: Doug McDonnell-10.05
With a view to supporting expressive, but tractable, collaborative
interactions between humans and agents, in this talk I will present an
approach for representing heterogeneous agent models, i.e., with
potentially diverse mental abilities and holding stereotypical
characteristics as members of a social reference group. We build a
computationally grounded mechanism for progressing their beliefs about
others' beliefs, supporting stereotypical as well as empathic reasoning.
We comment on how this approach can be used to build finite-state games,
restricting the analysis of possibly large-scale problems by focusing
only on the set of plausible evolutions.
Dr. Paolo Felli is a research fellow in the Computing and Information Systems Department at the University of Melbourne.
