Strachey Lecture with Prof. Sarit Kraus
On June 6th, Prof. Sarit Kraus was invited to the University of Oxford to hold a lecture on “Computer agents that interact proficiently with people”:
Automated agents – like the Virtual Suspect of LAW-TRAIN – that interact proficiently with people can be useful in supporting, training or replacing people in complex tasks. The inclusion of people presents novel problems for the design of automated agents’ strategies. People do not necessarily adhere to the optimal, monolithic strategies that can be derived analytically. Their behaviour is affected by a multitude of social and psychological factors. In this Prof. Kraus showed how combining machine learning techniques for human modelling, human behavioural models, formal decision-making and game theory approaches enables agents to interact well with people. As an example, LAW-TRAIN with its Virtual Suspect and virtual environment for training international joint investigation, was presented.
