As technology improves, so too does our ability to create life-like artificial agents
, such as robots and computer graphics.
Debates surrounding the moral status of artificial agents
as human persons are growing and developing.
As robots and artificial agents
become more prominent in human lives, they are also increasingly becoming parts of groups and teams.
Moreover, the importance of narrative ability in cognitive architectures, artificial agents
, and human-computer interaction has been discussed from various perspectives [5-8].

Among the topics are patchy connectivity and visual processing asymmetries: a neurodevelopmental hypothesis, a critique of pure hierarchy: uncovering cross-cutting structure in a natural dataset, implementing the "simple" model of reading deficits: a connectionist investigation of interactivity, and how to design emergent models of cognition for application-driven artificial agents

Experts say we'll interact with robots and other types of artificial agents
, such as avatars, increasingly in the near future - in workplaces, public spaces, and our own homes, as well as in education, health and care settings.
Winning submissions will provide real services that improve people's lives, ranging from hardware to software intelligence and artificial agents
"If we don't teach them how to eat better food, exercise, read and understand food labels, stay away from artificial agents
and emulsifiers in food, I think we'll have a far bigger problem than just a generation of fussy eaters," she says, adding that the importance of what we put in our body needs to be imbedded from an early age.
The name comes from "Framework for Individually Intelligent Autonomous Artificial Agents
are not morally responsible for their actions.
"As human-like artificial agents
become more commonplace, perhaps our perceptual systems will be re-tuned to accommodate these new social partners," the researchers write.
