When an adaptive agent works with a human user in a collaborative task, in order to enable flexible instructions to be issued by ordinary people, it is believed that a mutual adaptation phenomenon can enable the agent to handle flexible mapping relations between the human user’s instructions and the agent’s actions. To elucidate the conditions required to induce the mutual adaptation phenomenon, we designed an appropriate experimental environment called “WAITER” (Waiter Agent Interactive Training Experimental Restaurant) and conducted two experiments in this environment. The experimental results suggest that the proposed conditions can induce the mutual adaptation phenomenon.
