Rineke Verbrugge - Computational agents can help people improve their theory of mind
Rineke Verbrugge, Professor Logic and Cognition at Groningen University
When engaging in social interaction, people rely on their ability to reason about other people’s mental states, including goals, intentions, and beliefs. This theory of mind ability allows them to more easily understand, predict, and even manipulate the behavior of others. In this lecture, we discuss some experiments in which we have attempted to encourage participants to engage in higher-order theory of mind reasoning by letting them play games against computational agents.
