2 Utrecht University. 1 fte, fixed term. e. Summary of research My mission and that of my research group is to create synergy between humans and technology. In my vision of the future humans and intelligent systems will form ad hoc coalitions and by co-evolution both humans and intelligent systems will improve their effectiveness. In order for such cooperation to work, intelligent systems need to have situated awareness and need to work seamlessly with and for humans. Seen from the human perspective, agents furthermore need to be able to reason about and explain their purpose, way of working, and the limits of their capabilities. Furthermore, agents need to have the social intelligence to engage in interaction with humans in a socially acceptable way, and to build up and maintain long-term relationships with humans. My focus of contribution to this vision is modelling, analysis, and simulation of behaviour of individuals. In particular I focus on human reasoning capabilities and those concepts that are on the border between the human being as an individual and the human being as a social being, such as negotiation, national culture, organisation/team formation, and the concept of shared mental models. I develop artificial intelligence solutions for those aspects for which human reasoning falls short and the collaboration with an artificial intelligent support system will improve performance. In research in decision support systems I combine my research on automated negotiation and the GENIUS environment I instigated with that on cognitive agent technology, affect, and interactive intelligence. GENIUS is increasingly used by top research groups on automated negotiation, and is the vehicle of international competitions in this research field. Our negotiation strategies and opponent profiling techniques are consistently in the top of that competition. I received a personal grant for my VICI project the Pocket Negotiator (see section grants) that is about a decision support system for negotiation. Up to 2008 From a fundamental orientation in logic programming I changed from 1995 first towards application oriented, and then from 2000 to user-centred and application oriented research. In my opinion the way of the future is that humans and intelligent and autonomous computer applications (called artificial agents) will cooperate with each other in ad hoc coalitions in a form of co-evolution by which both humans and agents improve their effectiveness. This requires more research on the analysis, modelling, and simulation of behaviour of single agents (human or artificial) and organisations of agents. I contributed to the modelling, analysis, and simulation of individual behaviour. Considering the behaviour of humans I am most interested in reasoning capabilities. Of all human reasoning processes I am most fascinated by those concepts that are on the border between the human being as an individual and the human being as a social being, such as trust, negotiation, cooperation, theory of mind. A line of research that concerns behaviour of the individual, but has societal traits is the work on agent-based modelling of national cultures. Regarding organisations, I contributed to the design and specification of organisations and their behaviour. With my co-authors I separated the structure of an organisation from the behaviour of an organisation in terms of behavioural specifications of roles and groups. Note that both the structure of an organisation and the behaviour of the roles and groups within that structure can change. Change can come from inside the organisation, or can be the result of pressure of the environment. Given my prognosis of the future in which humans and artificial agents will cooperate, especially coalition formation, and/or ad hoc formation of virtual organisations is of importance. The connection between the individual and the organisations they work in is made in the domains of application that I studied: trade networks, incident management (civilian and naval context). I am one of the founders of the DESIRE design method and software environment for 2

3 the DEsign and Specification of Interacting REasoning components, with which I designed and implemented many agent-based systems. Furthermore, I am one of the founders of the LeadsTo and Temporal Trace languages and its associated simulation environment. My research on Negotiation Support Systems has gotten an enormous boost by my NWO VICI grant of end My publications resulting from this work vary from papers on negotiation strategies, preference elicitation, argumentation frameworks for preferences, affective computing, explanation, shared mental models, and design for values. f.

My tasks: Initiator, Co-writer of the proposal, coordinator and execution Results: None yet. NGI project NEGOM New Governance Models for Next Generation Infrastructures Users: Alliander, Belastingdienst (Tax), Thales, Theme: This research project takes as a starting point the necessity for decentralised decision making: that decisions need to be made at the most appropriate level within an rganisation, close to the stakeholders involved, near those with the best information. This project s main objective is to develop models for Societal Governance of Infrastructures, where local communities or possibly individual households have more influence on the regulatory framework of infrastructures. Given that circumstances vary widely with respect to the types of stakeholders, the social interests that are at stake and the level in society in which they occur, we expect to find a need for different governance processes for different issues. However, the distribution company also needs to have a transparent and consistent decision making process, so the analysis will include the question of how to combine these objectives. My subproject: Agent-based decision support for multi-party decision making. For which one Postdoc is payed from the subsidy. Period: start Sept 2011, end Sept Money: M 1.35 budget, of which k 535 subsidy by Next Generation Infrastructures.

VICI project Pocket Negotiator Users: Almende, Logica, D-CIS, Theme: Aims to develop a new type of human-machine collaborative system that combines the strengths of both and reduces the weaknesses. Fundamental in these systems will be that user and machine explicitly share a generic task model. Furthermore, such systems are to support humans in coping with emotions and moods in human-human interactions. For this purpose we will contribute new concepts, methods and techniques. For integrative bargaining we will develop such a system, called a Pocket Negotiator, to collaborate with human negotiators. The Pocket Negotiator will handle computational complexity issues, and provide bidding- and interaction advice, the user will handle background knowledge and interaction with the opponent negotiator. The Pocket Negotiator will enhance the negotiation skills and performance of the user by increasing the user s capacity for exploration of the negotiation space, reducing the cognitive task load, preventing mental errors, and improving win-win outcomes. We will devise a negotiation model that matches human cognitive representations of negotiation, and develop methods and tools to support humans in coping with emotions.

CIM Partners: Almende, Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica, Group 4 Falck, C Motions, TU Delft Theme: Cybernetic Incident Management: design and implementation of incident management systems that, if possible, prevent incidents to become disasters. Furthermore, analysis and simulation of scenario s to learn from past mistakes, and prevent new ones. Finally, a training software environment to train both human and software agents involved in incident management. Period: start March 2003, end Dec Money: 2.5 fte for 4 years added value, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Senternovem. My tasks: Acquisition, coordination and execution Results: See publications. The aim of the project is to gather knowledge in order to create a constantly adapting system that encompasses both people and supporting software and that has the ability to process and assess information in an adaptive, interactive and intelligent fashion to support human decisions. As a result, the execution of procedures and the assessment of information can be achieved more effectively. Because of the self-learning abilities of the system, experience is united in the system, not only in people but also in software agents and protocols. Because the 10

11 system automatically records and even facilitates communication between involved parties evaluation in retrospect can take place based on accurate data. DEAL Partners: Almende, Groeneveld Groep, Erasmus Universiteit, Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica, Post-Kogeko and Vos Logistics. Theme: Use of automated negotiation systems and other intelligent multi-agent systems for distributed control of logistics. Analysis and simulation as well. Period: start May 2002, end April Money: 1 fte for 4 years added value, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Senternovem. My tasks: Acquisition, coordination and execution Results: See publications. The transportation sector is faced with a suboptimum in transport because trucks drive empty 40-60% of the time on the average. This is caused by the large number of planning variables and the restrictions and dynamics of external factors. The constantly advancing ICT technology can reduce this suboptimum. The increase in the amount of traffic caused by economic growth in recent years is taking its toll on the infrastructure and the environment. On top of that, it is common knowledge that a large percentage of trucks on the road are actually empty. Market diffusion and a relatively low level of automation make it difficult to increase the logistic efficiency. The aim of DEAL is to speed up negotiations between different parties by using representation through software agents, increasing the number of examined alternatives as a result. The use of software agents also allow for an unlimited number of stakeholders to take part in negotiations, generating an overall optimal solution. With a higher level of detail of the information used in negotiations, such as specific location and remaining driving time, a better deal can be offered. Reducing the percentage of empty trucks has a significant effect on the environment as well. The amount of goods being moved remains the same, but the necessary mileage is strongly reduced. This leads to less CO2 emission, which contributes to the realization of the Kyoto treaty commitments. A side effect of the reduction in transportation movements is the improvement of mobility as a whole. Nego_Rephrase Type: NICI-PhD student, internal competition within the NICI for PhD projects.
