Resource-Constrained Social Evidence Based Cognitive Model for Empathy-Driven Artificial Intelligence

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10999)


Working model of social aspects of human and non-human intelligence is required for social embodiment of artificial general intelligence systems to explain, predict and manage behavioral patterns in multi-agent communities. For this purpose, we propose implementation of resource-constrained social evidence based model and discuss possible implications of its application.
