Towards Goal-aware Collaboration in Artistic Agent Societies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


We study the effects of goal-awareness in artistic agent societies creating evolutionary art.
we examine how goal-awareness may be utilized in modeling agent's peers when
the aesthetic goals of the agent and its peers are subject to change. The agents
use the learned peer models to choose their collaboration partners, and may alter
their own aesthetic goal for the duration of the collaboration in order to enhance
the potential of the collaboration outcomes.
In addition, we demonstrate how goal-awareness can be used to guide the aesthetic goal change.
The empirical evaluation indicates that
agents which can adapt to their collaboration partners are more likely to reach
favorable collaboration outcomes, even when their partners perceive fundamentally
different properties from the artifacts.
