   Abstract

From non-player characters in games to dialog-based assistants, digital agents are becoming more pervasive in our lives. A key challenge to a more widespread adoption of agents that will act on our behalf is to build trust with their end users. In this talk, I discuss how an intentional planning agent can build trust with explainable behavior change when unexpected events occur in their environment. We will cover how the QUEST cognitive model is used to evaluate human comprehension of the agent’s behavior change and how intention dependencies can enumerate a space of possible behavior changes.

   Bio for Adam Amos-Binks

Adam Amos-Binks has over 15 years experience in the Intelligence Community and is a Science Advisor at the Laboratory for Analytic Sciences where he leads the Anticipatory Thinking (AT) research program. As part of the AT program, his research focuses on how intentional agent behavior can affect our mental models of the future. He began his career in high performance computing, first in cryptography then specializing in data intensive applications and graph algorithms. He is a former member of the National Security Agency’s Math Research Group where he developed streaming machine learning algorithms for cyber security in partnership with IBM. In 2013, Adam was invited to become a visiting research scholar at the Laboratory for Analytic Sciences, a new government partnership with North Carolina State University and industry, whose mandate is to re-invent intelligence analysis.
