Study Description:

The Temporal Interpersonal Emotion Systems (TIES) research group, in the Department of Family Studies and Human Development, is currently recruiting participants for a study that will develop an artificially intelligent computer agent that can help human teams perform better.


Participants will play a video game, either alone or with several other people, while the computer agent watches and sometimes provides advice. During the game we will measure the human player’s brain activity to help the agent learn how to predict what people are thinking and feeling.

Participant Eligibility:

To participate in this study, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • All participants should be at least 18 years of age or older.


Participants will be financially compensated for their time.
