This tutorial will introduce attendees to a new theme of research called “Human-Agent Collectives” that deals with how to build systems involving humans and agents, working together in flexible relationships as part of teams.
The tutorial will cover specific research areas including:
- Human-Agent Interaction: flexible autonomy in deployed agent-based systems, real-world coalition formation under uncertainty.
- Crowdsourcing: algorithms for classification with humans and agents, incentive design for human crowds, task allocation in crowdsourcing, issues of trust in crowdsourcing.
- Information Infrastructures for Human-Agent systems: standards and models to guarantee reliable decisions, actions.
