Abstract:

Social credit assignment is a process of social judgment whereby one singles out individuals to blame or credit for multi-agent activities. Such judgments are a key aspect of social intelligence and underlie social planning, social learning, natural language pragmatics and computational models of emotion. Based on psychological attribution theory, this report presents a preliminary computational approach to forming such judgments using an agents causal knowledge and conversation interactions.
