Simulations for training can greatly benefit from BDI agents as virtual humans playing the role of key players. Learning to communicate effectively is a key aspect of training to command a team that is managing a crisis. In this paper, we present a goal-based dialogue system which has been applied to a navy fire-fighting incident simulation,...

There is an attention shift within the gaming industry toward more natural (long-term) behavior of nonplaying characters (NPCs). Multiagent system research offers a promising technology to implement cognitive intelligent NPCs. However, the technologies used in game engines and multiagent platforms are not readily compatible due to some inherent...

Agents in an organization need to coordinate their actions in order to reach the organizational goals. Organizational models specify the desired behaviour in terms of roles, relations, norms and interactions. In this research, we show how organizational rules can be adopted by autonomous agents. We have developed a method to translate norms into...

In order to achieve optimal results, an agent's way of decision making might need to change according to the circumstances. One of the aspects an agent can adapt is the way it processes external events. Therewith it controls to what extend it is being influenced by external factors. We argue that influence control is a form of metareasoning. In...

Several strategies are used to explain emergent interaction patterns in agent-based simulations. A distinction can be made between simulations in which the agents just behave in a reactive way, and simulations involving agents with also pro-active (goal-directed) behavior. Pro-active behavior is more variable and harder to predict than reactive...

Instructors play a major role in many of the current virtual training systems. Consequently, either many instructors per trainee are needed, which is expensive, or single instructors perform highly demanding tasks, which might lead to suboptimal training. To solve this problem, this paper proposes a cognitive model that not only generates the...

Agents in an organization need to coordinate their actions in order to reach the organizational goals. This research describes the relation between types of coordination and the autonomy of actors. In an experimental setting we show that there is not one best way to coordinate in all situations. The dynamics and complexity of, for example,...

services. In most of the current systems instructors play a major role; they enter the effects of trainee actions into the system, play the role of other characters in the scenario, and provide instruction, guidance and feedback to the trainee. Cognitive models can be used to support instructors by autonomously generating virtual character...

Autonomy is a crucial and powerful feature of agents and it is the subject of much research in the agent field. Controlling the autonomy of agents is a way to coordinate the behavior of groups of agents. Our approach is to look at it as a design problem for agents. We analyze the autonomy of an agent as a gradual property that is related to the...
