Intent recognition through goal mirroring

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOtherpeer-review


As the human population and life expectancy increases so does the need for integrating robots and virtual agents closely into everyday human life. These agents may provide care and attention where otherwise the manpower is lacking. In order to create better agents, that interact seamlessly with humans we need to draw lessons from what we know of human social cognition. Designing an agent inspired by these processes will provide an agent that is more predictable, less-threatening and overall welcome to its' human benefactor.
