Ants in the OCEAN: Modulating Agents with Personality for Planning with Humans


This work introduces a prototype that demonstrates the idea of using a psychological theory of personality types known as the Five-Factor Model (FFM) in planning for human-agent teamwork scenarios. FFM is integrated into the BDI model of agency leading to variations in the interpretation of inputs, the decision-making process and the generation of outputs. This is demonstrated in a multi-agent simulation, further, it is outlined how these variations can be used for the planning process in collaborative settings.
