Three Experiments in Dyadic Collaboration among Humans and Machines
In this presentation, we present findings from three behavioral experiments that focus on dyadic interactions in both human-human and human-machine groups. Dyadic interactions, which form the foundation of our collective intelligence, have been a relatively underexplored area of study. Moreover, when it comes to collaboration with intelligent machines, the impact of hybrid team members' characteristics on their collaborative efforts remains largely unexamined. Our three experiments cover a range of collaboration types, from tasks in near-field experimental settings to highly stylized collaborative games. We investigate various attributes of team members, including their levels of experience, gender, and political tendencies, as well as how the communication of this information within the dyad influences the efficiency and accuracy of the team's performance.
