Abstract

The importance of collaboration is growing in an era where knowledge-based tasks are increasingly accomplished by teams of people with complementary roles and expertise, as opposed to individuals doing isolated work. Moreover, the nature of collaboration is shifting to a more sophisticated skillset that includes accomplishing tasks through mediated interactions with peers halfway across the world or even computer-generated agents. The 4 papers presented in this symposium focus on this new opportunity of introducing computer-generated agents in collaboration as well as the challenges entailed. The presentations will cover a broad range of topics ranging from the assessment of collaborative problem-solving skills to the use of computer-generated agents in intelligent tutoring systems. In addition, they will illustrate the validity and practicability of various state-of-the-art approaches to introduce non-human collaborators into human collaboration.
