Modeling Socially Intelligent Agents in Organisations

Bruce Edmonds

Some work on modeling boundedly rational agents in organisations is described. It is then argued that social intelligence is not merely intelligence plus interaction but should allow for individual relationships to develop between agents. This means that, at least, agents must be able to distinguish, identify, model and address other agents, either individually or in groups; in other words that purely heterogeneous interaction is insufficient. Two example models are described, the second in detail where agents act and communicate socially, where this is determined by the evolution of their mental models. Finally some problems that arise in the interpretation of such simulations is discussed.
