Adjustable Autonomy, Norms and Pronouncers

Harko Verhagen and Magnus Boman

Discussions of agent autonomy levels largely ignore the function of norms in the agents’ decision making process. Allowing artificial agents to use norms makes smooth interaction in the social space less problematic. Agent autonomy will also increase if one grants agents normative support, making accurate and consistent models of other agents feasible. This will result in better behavior predictions and simulations of not only physical but also social systems.
