Research output: Contribution to conferenceUnpublished paperpeer-review


In this paper, we place ourselves in the context of human robot interaction and address the problem of cognitive robot modelling. More precisely we are investigating properties of a utility-based model that will govern a robot’s actions. The novelty of this approach lies in embedding the responsibility of the robot over the state of affairs into the utility model via a utility aggregation function. We describe desiderata for such a function and consider related properties.
