Discovering Human Desired Norms of Interaction Improves Social Adeptness in Agents

Henry Hexmoor and Srinivas Battula

A methodology for agents to acquire human desired norms for social interaction is discussed. To improve social adeptness, agents need to recognize social influences of their social actions and to act accordingly. An implemented system with a number of Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs) either under autonomous agent control or a human remote pilot control is presented. We illustrate interpersonal norms that agents discover from offering "help" to a human-controlled plane as well as asking for help from the human-controlled plane and in both cases receiving simple feedback.
