Collectively Cognitive Agents in Cooperative Teams
This research continues a line of recent investigation resulting already in Dunin-K̨eplicz and Verbrugge theory of collective motivational attitudes as well as a formal theory of teamwork.
In this paper we aim to describe our work over a theory of collective commitments in cooperative teams basing on a software test–bed for conducting trust–based agent experiments. First, short introductions to the theories of collective commitments and trust are given. Next, the most important properties of the system are presented together with a scenario of interplay. Finally several tests are described that compare different versions of a commitment applied in various situations.
