Interactive Intelligence Group
Responsible Intelligent agents & Intelligent human/agent-agent interaction
Our mission is to understand and engineer collaboration between humans & agents. We develop theories, models and methods of interactive intelligence by combining methods from AI and the social sciences.
The Interactive Intelligence (II) section focusses on socially interactive, intelligent agents. We research the intelligence that underlies and co-evolves during the repeated interactions of human and technology “agents” who cooperate to achieve a joint goal. Our research program aims for synergy and social interaction between humans and technology, to empower humans in their social context. The new technological challenges we face arise from the need to integrate Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Engineering, and behavioural sciences. In particular, the technological challenge is to develop socially aware agents that in interaction with humans co-adapt and co-learn over time. Social awareness implies context-awareness with the knowledge to interpret the physical situation in social terms and the knowledge to behave in a distinctive individual way that is personalized towards those the agent interacts with. In this manner, we endeavour to develop the interactive agent technology that empowers humans and groups of humans to deal with the societal and individual challenges such as the increasing need for sustained self-management for healthy ageing, safety and life-long education.

A virtual inner voice can help develop social skills
Social interactions make up a large part of our life, but social skills don’t come naturally to all. You can train them with self-help books or courses, and in recent years also with training systems based on supporting technologies such as virtual reality.
