The role of intelligent agents becomes more social as they are expected to act in direct interaction, involvement and/or interdependency with humans and other artificial entities, as in Human-Agent Teams (HAT). The highly interdependent and dynamic nature of teamwork demands correctly calibrated trust among team members. Trust violations are an...

Simulators and games provide contextually rich environments, enabling learners to experience the relations between actions, events and outcomes. In order to be effective, learning situations need to be tailored to the needs of the individual learner. Virtual characters (or agents) that, in real time, select, adapt, and exhibit the behavior that...

Explanation of actions is important for transparency of-, and trust in the decisions of smart systems. Literature suggests that emotions and emotion words - in addition to beliefs and goals - are used in human explanations of behaviour. Furthermore, research in e-health support systems and human-robot interaction stresses the need for studying...

Human-machine teaming (HMT) is a promising paradigm to approach situations in which humans and autonomous systems must closely collaborate. This paper describes SAIL, a software framework for implementing HMT-concepts. The approach of SAIL is to integrate existing autonomous systems in a framework, that serves as a social layer between...

Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, including intelligent agents, are becoming increasingly complex. Explainable AI (XAI) is the capability of these systems to explain their behaviour, in a for humans understandable manner. Cognitive agents, a type of intelligent agents, typically explain their actions with their beliefs and desires. However,...

This paper presents a cognitive (belief-desireintention based) agent that can self-explain its behaviour based on its goals and emotions. We implement a cognitive agent, embodied by a nao-robot or virtual avatar thereof, to play a quiz with its user. During the interaction the agent intelligently selects questions to optimally educate the user....

Due to advances in technology, the world around us contains an increasing number of robots, virtual agents, and other intelligent systems. These systems all have a certain degree of autonomy. For the people who interact with an intelligent system it is important to obtain a good understanding of its degree of autonomy: what tasks can the system...

A good explanation takes the user who is receiving the explanation into account. We aim to get a better understanding of user preferences and the differences between children and adults who receive explanations from a robot. We implemented a Nao-robot as a belief-desire-intention (BDI)-based agent and explained its actions using two different...

During scenario-based training, the scenario is dynamically adapted in real time to control the storyline and increase its effectiveness. A team of experienced staff members is required to manage and perform the adaptations. They manipulate the storyline and the level of support during their role-play of important characters in the scenario. The...

Abstract. Within human trust related behaviour, according to the literature from the domains of Psychology and Social Sciences often non-rational behaviour can be observed. Current trust models that have been developed typically do not incorporate non-rational elements in the trust formation dynamics. In order to enable agents that interact with...

Virtual training systems with intelligent agents provide an effective means to train people for complex, dynamic tasks like crisis management or firefighting. For successful training, intelligent virtual agents should be able to show believable behavior, adapt their behavior to the trainee’s performance and give useful explanations about their...

Serious games offer an opportunity for learning communication skills by practicing conversations with one or more virtual characters, provided that the character(s) behave in accordance with their assigned properties and strate-gies. This paper presents an approach for developing virtual characters by using the Belief-Desire-Intentions (BDI)...

Serious games offer an opportunity for players to learn communication skills by practicing conversations with non-playing characters (NPCs). To realize this potential, the player needs freedom of play to discover the relationships between its actions and their effects on the partner and the conversation. Scripting is currently the common...

Problems with estimating trust in information sources are common in time constraining and ambiguous situations and often lead to a decrease of team performance. Humans lack the resources to track the integrity of information and thus tend to over- or under-rely on advice from support systems. Two types of adaptive team support have been...

There are several applications in which humans and agents jointly perform a task. If the task involves interdependence among the team members, coordination is required to achieve good team performance. Coordination in human-agent teams can be improved by giving humans insight in the behavior of the agents. When humans are able to understand and...

Research regarding autonomous learning shows that freeplay does not result in optimal learning. Combining scenario-based training with intelligent agent technology offers the possibility to create autonomous training enriched with automated adaptive support delivered by a director agent. We conducted an experiment to investigate whether...

In this paper we present a rigorously setup VR negotiation training, including an intelligent virtual agent able to express emotion and to give explanations of its behavior. We discuss the measures we took to ensure the validity of the VR training. We also present a small scale experiment showing convergent validity of the VR training. © 2011...

When considering intelligent agents that interact with humans, having an idea of the trust levels of the human, for example in other agents or services, can be of great importance. Most models of human trust that exist, are based on some rationality assumption, and biased behavior is not represented, whereas a vast literature in Cognitive and...
