Abstract

Making a single machine act intelligently may be much less useful or important than being able to cooperate in an environment with other intelligent agents, whether they are humans or machines. Beyond being able to act intelligently in isolation, it is necessary for a system to be able to communicate with others, detect and correct mistakes, and take advantage of others' abilities.
