Human-Agent Collectives – Theories and Applications

Tuesday, July 15, 2014, 3:15pm – 7:15pm
Presented by Sarvapali D. Ramchurn, and Trung Dong Huynh
Located in Room 2041

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.
