A Computational Theory of Strategic Deception

Grant number: DP180101215 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021



This artificial project aims to develop a theory of strategic deception and test it through an Artificial Intelligence model. The project will combine computational Theory-of-Mind concepts with recent scientific findings to allow us to better understand whether and how intelligent technologies of the future might deceive humans. The findings will provide new insights into how Artificial Intelligence technologies of the future will impact applied areas of computing, where simulating advanced forms of social behaviour and cognition, including deception, will become increasingly significant.
