PhD student position in "Recognition of non-cooperative behaviour", Groningen (The Netherlands)

Deadline: Monday 31 August 2020

In hybrid intelligent systems in which humans and agents interact together, it is important to be able to understand and detect non-cooperative behavior such as lying and other forms of deception, both in people and in software agents. In this PhD project we will:

  • investigate the logical and computational foundations of deception and deception detection in hybrid groups
  • lay the theoretical groundwork for modelling and analysing non-cooperative behaviour in several communicative contexts such as negotiation games and coalition formation games
  • develop principled methods for the design of software agents that can detect when other group members are engaged in non-cooperative behaviour such as lying
  • build agent-based models and/or computational cognitive models of deception and deception detection
  • use simulation experiments in order to predict the outcomes of lab experiments to be performed.

Supervisors: Prof. dr. Rineke Verbrugge (University of Groningen) & Prof. dr. Catholijn Jonker (Leiden University, TU Delft). The PhD project is part of a 10 year, 19 million euro research program on 'Hybrid Intelligence: Augmenting Human Intellect', in which 6 Dutch universities collaborate.
