HPLAN: Facilitating the Implementation of Joint Human-Agent Activities


When it comes to planning for joint human-agent activities one has to consider not only a exible plan execution and social constraints but also the dynamic nature of humans. This can be done by providing additional information about a humans characteristics. For example, taking the physical and psychological condition of an elderly into consideration when developing collaborative applications like socially assistive robots. This work outlines Hplan, an extension to the agentframework JIAC V, that takes this requirement into account. HPLAN is strongly related to the conceptual model of dynamic planning components and integrates humans as avatars into a life cycle of planning, execution and learning.
