* *Bounded rationality* has strong influence on economics, psychology, and AI
* Empirical: Kahneman
* Theoretical: Simon, Rubinstein
* Design agents of bounded rationality in the context of explainability
* Focus on *empathy* (altruism)

Goals for Sympathetic Actions
* Altruistic/utilitarian preferences
* Establishing or following a norm/encouraging sympathetic actions from others
* Compromising in case no equilibrium strategy exists
* No Explanation.
* Provide a *clue* (that hints at the favor).
* Explain *that* (a favor is provided).
* Explain *why* (a favor is provided, norm).
* Explain *why* (a favor is provided, consequence).
Towards Empirical Assessment I
* Human-robot ultimatum game
* 6 rounds
* Roles switch every round
* 100 coins to share per round
* Two modes, randomly selected per participant:
*explanations*, *no explanations*
* $n = 19$
Towards Empirical Assessment II
* Robot is rational acceptance, but *sympathetic* in proposals
* #Rejections per game
* #Coins optained by human and agent
* Reported *niceness* of robot (scale: 1-5)
Towards Empirical Assessment III
Towards Empirical Assessment IV
Towards Empirical Assessment V
Towards Empirical Assessment VI
* Scale study
=> Port study application to web
* Test different modes
* Learning agents that facilitate sympathetic actions
* $n$-agent scenarios
