12. Engineering Emergent Actor-Agent Behaviour Gouman, Wijngaards, Nieuwenhuis Abstract The focus of the interdisciplinary D-CIS Lab’s research is on actor-agent communities (AACs). In these communities, actors (humans) and agents (artificial entities) together pursue a shared goal in a changing environment. Current examples include AACs for environmental crisis management, train-driver rescheduling and contextualized super situation awareness for first responders. Part of the research on AACs focusses on the sustained effectiveness of actor-agent teams: can their (emergent) performance be monitored and managed over time, given changes to their common goal, team dynamics and environmental dynamics? A derived aspect concerns designing, monitoring and controlling emergent behaviour arising from the interactions among the (changing population of) actors and agents. Other aspect are (offline and online) simulation of team effectiveness, as well as design and development of (quasi) cognitive capabilities for participating agents. Our contribution to this workshop is based on our sociotechnical approach, interdisciplinary research, and research & development on large-scale AACs.
