Collaborative Cognition - overview

Certain problems in real life require collaboration (cooperation, competition, or coordination) from multiple agents (human or machines) in a social machine to take a decision that maximizes an overall or public goal or utility. Every agent in such a collaborative setting has its own private goal or utility. It is often a challenge to maximize the public utility while balancing each agent's individual private utilities.

We propose a Collaborative Cognition (e.g., Sensing, Learning, and Decision Making) framework to provide solutions for such real world problems. Collaborative Cognition refers to an analytic viewpoint that looks beyond an individual’s cognition to include interactions of individuals with others (including other non-human cognitive agents) in order to develop far superior collective intelligence through computational modeling/evaluations of strategic interactions among the agents.
