A Collaborative agent architecture with human-agent communication model
International Workshop on Cognitive Agents for Virtual Environments (1st : 2012) (4 June 12 : Valencia)
Dignum, Frank; Brom, Cyril; Hindriks, Koen; Beer, Martin and Richards, Deborah. Cognitive agents for virtual environments : first international workshop, CAVE 2012, held at AAMAS 2012, Valencia, Spain, June 4, 2012 : revised selected papers, p.70-88
Designing a virtual agent architecture that comprises collaboration between the agents and human users remains a challenging issue due to differences in beliefs, ways of reasoning and the abilities used to achieve the common goal. Allowing the agent and human to communicate verbally and non-verbally while achieving the collaborative task, further increases the difficulty of the challenge. In this paper, we present an overview of existing research involving collaborative agents in virtual environments and extend our Multi-Agent Collaborative VIrtuaL Learning Environment (MACVILLE) agent architecture to handle two-way human-agent collaboration. A scenario is provided.
