New framework for cooperative bots aims to mimic high-performing human teams


A Georgia Institute of Technology research group in the School of Interactive Computing has developed a robotics system for collaborative bots that work independently to achieve a shared goal. The system intelligently increases the information shared among the bots and allows for improved cooperation. The aim is to model high-functioning human teams. It also creates resiliency against bad or unreliable team bots that may hinder the overall programmed goal. "Intuitively, the idea behind our new framework -- InfoPG -- is that a robot agent goes back-and-forth on what it thinks it should do with their teammates, and then the teammates will update on what they think is best to do," said Esmaeil Seraj, Ph.D. student in the CORE Robotics Lab and researcher on the project.
