ABSTRACT
Human users form coalitions to solve complex tasks and earn
rewards. Examples of such coalition formation can be found in
the military, education, and business domains. Multiagent coali-
tion formation techniques cannot be readily used to form human
coalitions due to the unique aspects of the human coalition forma-
tion problem, e.g., uncertainty in human user behavior and
changes in human user behaviors due to human learning. Thus, a
multiagent system designed to form human coalitions has to solve
a learning problem, that is further made difficult by the limited
learning opportunities and usability issues (i.e., actions or deci-
sions being perceived as not useful due to loss of immediate re-
wards while the agents are learning or exploring) intrinsic to the
