Cooperative Problem Solving

Cooperative Problem Solving
Cooperative Problem Solving
We present a model of cooperative problem solving that describes the process from its beginning, with some agent recognizing the potential for cooperation with respect to one of its goals, through to team action. Our approach is to characterize the mental states of the agents that lead them to solicit, and take part in, cooperative action. The model is formalized by expressing it as a theory in a quantified multi-modal logic.

Abstract

We present a model of cooperative problem solving that describes the process from its beginning, with some agent recognizing the potential for cooperation with respect to one of its goals, through to team action. Our approach is to characterize the mental states of the agents that lead them to solicit, and take part in, cooperative action. The model is formalized by expressing it as a theory in a quantified multi-modal logic.
