ToMCAT Artificial Social Intelligence Project Funded by $7.5M Grant

A collaboration between the Information School, Computer Science, and Family Studies and Human Development has been awarded a $7.5M grant to develop a theory of mind-based cognitive architecture for teams (ToMCAT). The grant is part of the DARPA Artificial Social Intelligence for Successful Teams (ASIST) program. The collaborating team includes computer science professor Dr. Jacobus Barnard. The project aims to build artificially intelligent agents that understand both the social and goal-oriented aspects of teams in mission-like scenarios and are able to reason about possible interventions.
