    • Adapting to Agents' Personalities in Negotiation 

      Gal, Ya'akov; Talman, Shavit; Hadad, Meirav; Kraus, Sarit (2005)
      To establish cooperative relationships, agents must be willing to engage in helpful behavior and to keep their commitments with agents who reciprocate this behavior. However, in uncertain and dynamic environments, it is ...
    • Agent Decision-Making in Open Mixed Networks 

      Gal, Ya'akov; Grosz, Barbara J.; Kraus, Sarit; Shieber, Stuart M. (Elsevier, 2010)
      Computer systems increasingly carry out tasks in mixed networks, that is in group settings in which they interact both with other computer systems and with people. Participants in these heterogeneous human-computer groups ...
    • Economic Games on the Internet: The Effect of $1 Stakes 

      Amir, Ofra; Rand, David Gertler; Gal, Ya'akov (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Online labor markets such as Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) offer an unprecedented opportunity to run economic game experiments quickly and inexpensively. Using Mturk, we recruited 756 subjects and examined their behavior ...
    • The Influence of Contexts on Decision-Making 

      Gal, Ya'akov; Grosz, Barbara J.; Pfeffer, Avi; Shieber, Stuart Merrill; Allain, Alex (2007)
      Many environments in which people and computer agents interact involve deploying resources to accomplish tasks and satisfy goals. This paper investigates the way that the contextual setting in which decisions are made ...
    • A Language for Descriptive Decision and Game Theory 

      Pfeffer, Avi; Gal, Ya'akov (2002)
      In descriptive decision and game theory, one specifies a model of a situation faced by agents and uses the model to predict or explain their behavior. We present Influence Diagram Networks, a language for descriptive ...
    • Modeling Information Exchange Opportunities for Effective Human-Computer Teamwork 

      Kamar, Ece; Gal, Ya'akov; Grosz, Barbara J. (Elsevier, 2013)
      This paper studies information exchange in collaborative group activities involving mixed networks of people and computer agents. It introduces the concept of "nearly decomposable" decision-making problems to address the ...
    • Modeling User Perception of Interaction Opportunities for Effective Teamwork 

      Kamar, Ece; Gal, Ya'akov; Grosz, Barbara J. (IEEE, 2009)
      This paper presents a model of collaborative decision-making for groups that involve people and computer agents. The model distinguishes between actions relating to participantspsila commitment to the group and actions ...
    • Plan Recognition in Exploratory Domains 

      Gal, Ya'akov; Reddy, Swapna; Shieber, Stuart M.; Rubin, Andee; Grosz, Barbara J. (Elsevier, 2012)
      This paper describes a challenging plan recognition problem that arises in environments in which agents engage widely in exploratory behavior, and presents new algorithms for effective plan recognition in such settings. ...
    • Recognition of Users' Activities using Constraint Satisfaction 

      Reddy, Swapna Cherukupalli; Gal, Ya'akov; Shieber, Stuart M. (Springer, 2009)
      Ideally designed software allow users to explore and pursue interleaving plans, making it challenging to automatically recognize user interactions. The recognition algorithms presented use constraint satisfaction techniques ...
