Psychological Portrait of a Virtual Agent in the Teleport Game Paradigm

The videogame platform Teleport created earlier allows us to study anonymous social interactions among actors of various nature: human and virtual actor, ensuring their indistinguishability, which implies believable behavior of a virtual actor. The present study found a connection between the human player behavior in the Teleport game and her psychological portrait constructed using the sixteen-factor Catell personality test for empathy. Assuming that this connection is extendable to perception of virtual actor behavior, the game sessions data was analyzed to infer behavioral characteristics of virtual actors. Based on this data analysis, we constructed psychological characteristics of models of a virtual actor (a bot). Partner and emotional characteristics of bots were defined, and their psychological portrait was constructed based on the registered bot behavior. Personal characteristics such as courage, sociability, calmness, balance, and loyalty were attributed to bots and compared to analogous characteristics of human players.

Toward a General Believable Model of Human-Analogous Intelligent Socially Emotional Behavior

Social virtual actors need to interact with users emotionally, convincing them in their ability to understand human minds. For this to happen, an artificial general emotional intelligence is needed, capable of believable behavior in real-life situations. Summarizing recent work of the authors, the present work extends the general state-of-the-art framework of emotional AGI, using the emotional Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architecture (eBICA) as a basis. In addition to appraisals, other kinds of fluents are added to the model, including somatic markers, feelings, emotional biases, moods, etc. Their integration is achieved based on semantic maps and moral schemas. It is anticipated that the proposed new level of artificial general socially emotional intelligence will complement the next-generation AGI, helping it to merge into our society on equal with its human members.
