Communication computation model for modeling dynamic human communication

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A communication computation model for modeling human communication is proposed. In this computation model, an individual communicator is represented by an AutonomousObject and a group communicator is represented by a GroupField. The mode of communication is representedby the communicative functions appropriate to each mode. A method is described for modeling the dynamic character of communication while changing among these various communication types. The dynamic character of communication is described as the selection of the communicative function corresponding to the mode of communication as well as the resultant information exchanges. A communication process is described as a combination of these communicative functions.
