Interaction Frames for Artificial Agents

Research output: Working paper

Abstract / Description of output

This paper introduces interaction frames as a novel method of "socially informed" reasoning in multiagent systems. We show that interactionist sociological theories provide valuable concepts and methods when it comes to modelling the "social level of representation" in artificial intelligence by operationalising "frames" as a generic data structure that can be used to capture interaction knowledge and by presenting a "framing" agent architecture that is based on interaction frames. We claim that, although further steps are necessary in order to develop actual implementations out of this abstract architecture, it provides an interesting perspective for a new kind of "socially autonomous" agent-based systems.
