Title: Modeling situated abstraction : action coalescence via multidimensional coherence.

Abstract

Situated social agents weigh dozens of priorities, each with its own complexities. Domains of interest are intertwined, and progress in one area either complements or conflicts with other priorities. Interpretive agents address these complexities through: (1) integrating cognitive complexities through the use of radial concepts, (2) recognizing the role of emotion in prioritizing alternatives and urgencies, (3) using Miller-range constraints to avoid oversimplified notions omniscience, and (4) constraining actions to 'moves' in multiple prototype games. Situated agent orientations are dynamically grounded in pragmatic considerations as well as intertwined with internal and external priorities. HokiPoki is a situated abstraction designed to shape and focus strategic agent orientations. The design integrates four pragmatic pairs: (1) problem and solution, (2) dependence and power, (3) constraint and affordance, and (4) (agent) intent and effect. In this way, agents are empowered to address multiple facets of a situation in an exploratory, or even arbitrary, order. HokiPoki is open to the internal orientation of the agent as it evolves, but also to the communications and actions of other agents.
