Context-aware Active Perception in Multi-agent Asymmetric Information Games
Macheng Shen, 2019

We are developing a general purpose algorithm for solving asymmetric information games that combines self-play for policy discovery, online POMDP planner for anticipation of opponent strategies, and maximum entropy agent modeling for robust belief update.
