Intention Recognition, Commitment and Their Roles in the Evolution of Cooperation

From Artificial Intelligence Techniques to Evolutionary Game Theory Models

Authors: Han, The Anh

  • A unique self-contained excursion that reveals to the readers the roles of two basic cognitive abilities, i.e. intention recognition and arranging commitments, in the evolution of cooperative behavior 
  • Proposes a novel intention recognition method together with a new framework for intention-based decision-making 
  • Develops an original and coherent interdisciplinary approach that incorporates techniques and concepts of computer science and artificial intelligence together with those of evolutionary psychology and evolutionary game theory

About this book

This original and timely monograph describes a unique self-contained excursion that reveals to the readers the roles of two basic cognitive abilities, i.e. intention recognition and arranging commitments, in the evolution of cooperative behavior. This book analyses intention recognition, an important ability that helps agents predict others’ behavior, in its artificial intelligence and evolutionary computational modeling aspects, and proposes a novel intention recognition method. Furthermore, the book presents a new framework for intention-based decision making and illustrates several ways in which an ability to recognize intentions of others can enhance a decision making process. By employing the new intention recognition method and the tools of evolutionary game theory, this book introduces computational models demonstrating that intention recognition promotes the emergence of cooperation within populations of self-regarding agents. Finally, the book describes how commitment provides a pathway to the evolution of cooperative behavior, and how it further empowers intention recognition, thereby leading to a combined improved strategy.
