Abstract: Each of us has an incredibly large repertoire of behaviours from which to select from at any given time, and as our behavioural complexity grows so too does the possibility that we will misunderstand each other’s actions. However, we have evolved a cognitive mechanism that allows us to understand another person’s psychological space: their motivations, constraints, plans, goals and emotional state and it is called our ‘Theory of Mind’. This capability allows us to understand the choices another person might make on the basis that the other person has their own ‘internal world’ that influences their choices in the same way as our own internal world influences our choices. Arguably, this is one of the most significant cognitive developments in human evolutionary history, along with our ability for long term adaptation to familiar situations and our ability to reason dynamically in completely novel situations. So the question arises: Can we implement the rudimentary foundations of a huma n-like Theory of Mind in an artificial mind such that it can dynamically adapt to the likely decisions of another mind (artificial or biological) by holding an internal representation of that other mind? This article argues that this is possible and that we already have much of the necessary theoretical foundations in order to begin the development process. (More)
