Diversity-Awareness – The Key to Human-Like Computing?

Abstract: While AI has recently produced impressive systems that achieve human-like performance at challenging tasks, these systems tell us very little about how human intelligence works. In particular, they do not address the problem of composing knowledge and behaviour incrementally Continue reading

Diversity-Aware Recommendation for Human Collectives

Abstract: Sharing economy applications need to coordinate humans, each of whom may have different preferences over the provided service. Traditional approaches model this as a resource allocation problem and solve it by identifying matches between users and resources. These require Continue reading

E-HBA: Using Action Policies for Expert Advice and Agent Typification

Abstract: Past research has studied two approaches to utilise pre-defined policy sets in repeated interactions: as experts, to dictate our own actions, and as types, to characterise the behaviour of other agents. In this work, we bring these complementary views Continue reading

Reflection, collectives and adaptation: the role of models in the design of Collective Adaptive Systems

Abstract: We report work in progress on the role of models in the formation and maintenance of collectives in Hybrid Diversity-Aware Collective Adaptive Systems (HDA-CASs). HDA-CASs utilize hybrid computations involving machines and humans operating in collectives in a way that Continue reading
