@inproceedings { dimas13, abstract = {The Dynamic Identity Model for Agents allows simulating the influence of social context in autonomous agents' identity. Social context changes the way people perceive their or others’ identity (either as part of a social group or as unique and distinctive individuals). This perception tends to bias rational decision by leading to more cooperation with the members of a group, even when the group’s goals contrast from the personal goals. The process is dynamic since the identity perceived shifts as the social context changes and its salience (strength) changes as well. We believe this is crucial for autonomous agents that face scenarios with social dilemmas, where group and personal interests are in conflict.}, address = {Heidelberg}, booktitle = {Intelligent Virtual Agents 2013 - IVA 2013}, keywords = {Intelligent Virtual Agents;Context-Situated Agents;Cooperation;Dynamic Identity;Social Bias;Social Identity;Social Dilemma}, pages = {460-461}, publisher = {Springer / Heidelberg}, series = {Lecture Notes in Computer Science}, title = {Social Identity Bias in Agents’ Rational Decision}, year = {2013}, author = {Joana Dimas and Phil Lopes and Guida Preto and Pedro Santos and Rui Prada} }
