Learning to Cooperate in Normal Form Games

We study the problem of achieving cooperation between two self-interested agents that play a sequence of randomly generated normal form games, each game played only once. To achieve cooperation we extend a model used to explain cooperative behavior by humans. We show how a modification of a pre-regularized particle filter can be used to detect the cooperation level of the opponent and play accordingly. We examine how properties of the games affect the ability of an agent to detect cooperation and explore the effects of different environments and different levels of conflict. We present results obtained in simulation on hundreds of randomly generated games.
