2 What does the I in HRI stand for? Interaction: influence—verbal, physical or emotional—by one individual on another (Sears, Peplau, & Taylor, 1991).
3 How can we represent interaction computationally? Game Theory Strategic interaction Assumes that each player maximizes influence Interesting equilibrium results Normal form game Interdependence Theory Constructed from psychological experiments No assumptions about player’s motives No equilibrium results Outcome matrix
4 The Outcome Matrix/Normal Form Game Representation: A finite set of N individuals For each i a nonempty set of actions A i A scalar outcome value ( o ) for every pair of actions (influence) -i used to represent the robot’s partner Outcome Matrix Person 1 Person 2 Accept5 8 2 Reject0 FairUnfair
5 Social Situations and Interaction An interaction is a discrete period of influence between two individuals choosing between particular actions Social situation is an abstract representation of a class of interactions involving particular outcome values Tom Eric Admit Guilt Claim innoc.

6 The Space of Social Situations Interdependence space (Kelley, et al. 2003) Location in the space provides info. about the situation The dimensions are: Interdependence Correspondence Control Symmetry – not shown
7 Deception (joint with Ron Arkin) Deception is commonly used by animals The use of deception by primates may indicate Theory of Mind (Byrne & Whiten, 1990) Signal exaggeration, signal suppression, distractions, hiding objects, etc. May be a hallmark of social intelligence (Byrne & Whiten, 1990) Mimicry Camouflage
8 Defining Deception Deception: “Causing another to believe what is not true; to mislead or ensnare.” (Webster’s, 1999) Deliberately induced misperception (McClesky, 1991) A false communication that tends to benefit the communicator (Bond and Robinson, 1988) We use Bond and Robinson’s definition because of its general applicability
9 Situations Warranting Deception Deception is a false communication that tends to benefit the communicator (Bond and Robinson, 1988) 1) Deceiver provides false communication. This implies conflict. 2) Deceiver benefits from communication. This implies dependence.
10 Computationally Representing Deception Mark Deceiver Play dead x 9x 2 Don’t Play Dead x ApproachStay away Deceiver and Mark choose actions Deceiver selects actions that will influences Mark’s behavior Play dead so that Mark will approach Induced Matrix
11 Computationally Representing Deception Mark Deceiver Play dead x 9x 2 Don’t Play Dead x ApproachStay away Deceiver’s actions make Mark think that one action is more rewarding or less costly then it actually is -3 True value True Matrix
12 Trust Idea: Some social situations require trust and others do not Can we use our representation of social situations and interaction to classify situations in terms of trust?
13 Defining trust Trust is a belief, held by the trustor, that the trustee will act in a manner that mitigates the trustor’s risk in a situation in which the trustee has put its outcomes at risk. Key point: risk
14 Classifying situational trust Trustor Trustee Action A Lean back Action B Don’t lean back A trustor is the individual doing the trusting. The trustee is the individual being trusted Let action A be the trusting action and action B be the untrusting action Action C Catch Action D Don’t catch
15 Classifying situations in terms of trust Trustor Trustee If the trustor doesn’t trust the trustee, then their outcome is 6, and the trustee’s action doesn’t matter, i.e. no risk! If the trustor trusts the trustee, then they risk 6 for a possible gain of 12 If the trusting action is selected, then the trustee’s choice of action determines the trustor’s outcome Action C Catch Action D Don’t catch Action A Lean back Action B Don’t lean back
16 Conditions for Situational Trust Trustor Trustee We can thus list some conditions for trust: 1.It is better for trustor if the trustee acts in a trusting manner (12 > 0 ) 2.It is better for trustor to select the untrusting action, than for the trustor to trust and have the trustee not act in a trusting manner ( from example 12 > 6 > 6 > 0 ) Action C Catch Action D Don’t catch Action A Lean back Action B Don’t lean back
17 How much Trust? Trust risk Risk: expectation over a loss function L R(x) = L(x,y)p(x) where x is predicted y is the true value Partner Model related Context/Situation related loss
