AIC Seminar Series

Socially Conscious Decision-Making

Alyssa GlassPalo Alto Research Center (PARC)

Date:  2003-04-03 at 16:00

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)

   Abstract

For individually motivated agents to work collaboratively to satisfy shared goals, they must make decisions about actions and intentions that take into account their commitments to group activities. In this talk, I will examine the role of social consciousness in the process of reconciling intentions to do group-related actions with other, conflicting intentions. I will operationalize the notion of social consciousness and provide a first attempt to formally add social consciusness to a cooperative decision-making model. I will define a measure of social consciousness; describe its incorporation into the SPIRE experimental system, a simulation environment that allows the process of intention reconciliation in team contexts to be studied; and present results of several experiments that investigate the interaction in decision-making of measures of group and individual good.
