Alignment and Legal Information Retrieval

Introduction The challenge addressed here is that of ensuring that all applicable rules, laws, and regulations are loaded into artificial-intelligence agents' working memories as they encounter wide, potentially open-ended, sets of situations. By agents being able to search for, retrieve, and load applicable rules, laws, and regulations into their working memories, they could be in […]

Agents with Internal States

Introduction With respect to creating believable artificial-intelligence agents, rule-based approaches have been explored for four decades and modern approaches include uses of large language models (Park, O’Brien, Cai, Morris, Liang, & Bernstein, 2023). Generative artificial-intelligence models hold the potential to advance believable agent architectures through the integration of various emotional models (Hutson & Ratican, 2023). […]

Multi-agent Question-answering Systems

Introduction Agents representing ideological stances, positions, perspectives, or schools of thought can serve in multi-agent systems which generate encyclopedic answers to end-users' complex questions. Agent Design, Reuse and Selection Large language models can generate content while role-playing, or impersonating, characters and personas (Shanahan, McDonell, & Reynolds, 2023). They can be fine-tuned using the works of […]

Role-playing Language Agents

Introduction Personas for role-playing language agents can be categorized into three distinct categories: demographic personas, character personas, and individualized personas (Chen, Wang, Xu, Tuan, Zhang, Shi, & Xie, 2024). Demographic personas focus on groups of people sharing common characteristics. Character personas represent well-established, widely-recognized individuals. Individualized personas refer to digital profiles built and continuously updated […]

The Recommendation of Advice and Wisdom

Introduction Wise people share advice and wisdom in the forms of allegories, anecdotes, aphorisms, apologues, fables, folklore, historical analogues, jokes, literature, lyrics, parables, poems, proverbs, quotations, stories, and witticisms. It is a multidisciplinary challenge to build artificial intelligence systems capable of these tasks. Towards solving this challenge, a new approach is presented: story-based search and […]
