    Abstract

    The study of how humans establish mutual understanding is intertwined with the design of artificial conversation systems [1,2,3,4,5]. The focus of this paper is perspective-taking in and artificial imitation of communication. Regardless of whether an engineer takes psychological theory into consideration when building an agent, an underlying philosophy of perspective-taking is evident when observing the agent's performance. Furthermore, theories of perspective-taking offer designers an advantage in two ways: 1) These agents could better imitate human behavior. 2) These agents could use common tendencies in human behavior as an advantage in communicating with humans.
