Trust-Aware Teaming in Multi-Agent Human-Robot Collaboration

Seminar Abstract:
Trust has been identified as a critical factor for effective human-robot teaming. However, existing literature on trust modeling predominantly focuses on dyadic human-robot teams, and there is little, if not no, research on trust modeling in multi-human-multi-robot (MHMR) teams. To fill this research gap, we propose the Trust Inference and Propagation (TIP) model, a mathematical framework for computational trust modeling in MHMR teams. The TIP model accounts for both the direct and indirect experiences that a human agent has with a robot, successfully capturing the underlying trust dynamics and significantly outperforming a baseline model. In addition, to foster trust in MHMR teams, we develop an online learning algorithm for real-time, optimal team formation in dynamic, collaborative environments. Specifically, we model the teaming problem as a matching linear bandit and show the proposed algorithm achieves sublinear regret, which offers a promising avenue for real-time, optimal team formation that goes beyond static or pre-planned strategies.
