Measures of Adaptive Communication.  (2003)
Abstract Header
Adaptive communication has been theorized to be beneficial for the efficiency of tasks involving communication. This paper describes a study where accommodating simulated agents adapted to their human partnersí word choice and non-accommodating agents purposely chose different but equivalent words. Both agents adapted to message length, which, along with task completion time, was used as a dependent measure of efficiency. Human subjects paired with accommodating agents were shown to be more efficient than subjects paired with nonaccommodating agents, and survey ratings of cooperativeness and ability were higher for the accommodating agents.
