Synthetic Social Construction for Autonomous Characters

Eric Baumer and Bill Tomlinson

Borrowing ideas from the notion of social construction of self, this paper puts forth the idea of synthetic social construction - multiagent systems in which agents socially construct each others’ roles and behaviors via their interactions with one another. An example implementation of synthetic social construction is presented demonstrating one use of this method to facilitate behavior akin to social learning. Synthetic social construction represents a novel approach to adaptive behavior in multiagent systems informed by human behaviors.
