To address this gap in social intelligence and consequently virtual agent believability, we introduce the cognitive processes that underlie social power intelligence. In conceptualizing these we identify three core social power components required for operationalizing social power in agents. Our design process is inspired by theoretical background research in social psychology that have long studied social power.}, address = {Istanbul, Turkey}, booktitle = {AAMAS’2015 - 14th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems}, keywords = {Intelligent Virtual Agents;Multi-Agent Societies;}, month = {May}, pages = {1857-1858}, publisher = {IFAAMAS}, title = {Towards social power intelligent agents (Extended Abstract)}, year = {2015}, author = {Gonçalo Pereira and Rui Prada and Pedro Santos} }
