The Intelligent Agents Lab is dedicated to investigating social models within RAP systems (Robots, Agents, and People), with a particular emphasis on studying the behavior of people within games and simulation environments where people and agents can interact on an “equal footing”. In these social-computatiol systems where autonomous agents must interact with larger groups of people, it is insufficient to model and infer the activity of one person; we must be able to understand larger social structures such as teams, groups, and crowds. To study these problems, my students and I conduct basic research on agent-based modeling, machine learning, and search; we aim to improve on the state of the art methods used in: 1) agents for games and simulations 2) human motion alysis and path prediction 3) social simulations of groups and teams 4) human-robot interaction.
