Human-AI Teaming, AI Agent Development, Collaborative Games


With the goal of better understanding Human-machine Teaming (HMT) dynamics and how team competencies that are transportable across contexts can lead to different teaming behaviors and team performances, I propose a series of three studies to explore communication, coordination and adaptation in HMT paradigms. I implement and integrate multiple AI agents and use collaborative games as testing environments to evaluate teaming effects. My work can provide findings to two higher level research questions that are widely studied in HMT: 1) the bidirectional behaviors that human and AI agents may develop when working as a team and, 2) how different types of AI agents can impact the teaming efficiency in human-AI teaming. Besides, my work can also contribute to Human-Computer Interaction and Game AI scholarship with insights into teaming dynamics in Human-AI teaming.
