Machine Learning

Introduction to Machine Learning

Machine learning is a subfield of computer science and data science that evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence.

Machine learning explores the construction and study of algorithms that can learn from and make predictions on data.Such algorithms operate by building a model from example inputs in order to make data-driven predictions or decisions, rather than following strictly static program instructions.

Effective Favor Exchange for Human-Agent Negotiation Challenge at IJCAI 2020

September, 2020


This document describes Pilot, our submission for Human-Agent Negotiation Challenge at IJCAI 2020. Pilot is a virtual human that participates in a sequence of three negotiations with a human partner. Our system is based on the Interactive Arbitration Guide Online (IAGO) negotiation framework. We leverage prior Affective Computing and Psychology research in negotiations to guide various key principles that define the behavior and personality of our agent. Pilot has been selected as one of the finalists for presentation at IJCAI.
