Generalized Media of Interaction and Interagent Coordination

Thomas Malsch, Ingo Schulz-Schaeffer

This paper investigates social intelligence from a sociological perspective. Starting from social interaction and the problem of "double contingency" it shows how "generalized symbolic media of interaction" facilitate coordination processes in modern human societies. It advocates the concept of media as a source of fruitful inspiration for the design of socially intelligent agents and artificial social systems.
