Using Automated Agents to Teach Negotiation

Although an integral part of daily life, most people are poor negotiators. A variety of courses, training programs and books offer ways in which individuals can improve their negotiation abilities. However, some of these methods can expensive and often ineffective. Virtual role-playing agents offer a  low-cost, and effective way of providing training. For these agents to be effective, they must engage users in a realistic negotiation role-playing exercise and provide feedback grounded in established negotiation principles. In our work, we explore how best to utilized virtual agents to teach negotiation and provide meaningful feedback

Social Influence of Robots and Virtual Humans

In this work, we explore how rapport and other social factors affect the level of influence a virtual human or robot may have in a social setting.
