  • The FAIR researchers’ key technical innovation in building such long-term planning dialog agents is an idea called dialog rollouts.
  • To evaluate the negotiation agents, FAIR tested them online in conversations with people.
  • FAIR researchers created many such negotiation scenarios, always ensuring that it is impossible for both agents to get the best deal simultaneously.
  • Today, researchers at Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) have open-sourced code and published research introducing dialog agents with a new capability — the ability to negotiate.
  • The FAIR researchers studied negotiation on a multi-issue bargaining task.
