Successful human teams operate by the individuals in those teams modelling the relevant perspective of their team mates, including what their team members can do, what they know or believe, and what their intentions are; in short, they have a Theory of Mind about their team members. To do this, they may consider how their team members are about to act, how this affects the outcomes of their own actions, and what information needs to be shared. We call this 'social planning', reflecting that such planning itself is a social activity that requires thinking about and communicating with others.

Motivated by the problem of designing and implementing artificial agents that are able to work collaboratively as part of a human-agent team, we hypothesis that artificial agents will be more human-intuitive, transparent, and trusted if they are able to adopt social planning. In recent work, we have leveraged state-of-the-art planning techniques to realise social planning in several applications of areas, including both collaborative and adversarial settings, mostly related to projects from the Australian Defence Force. In this talk, I will discuss some of these techniques -- in particular, multi-agent epistemic planning -- and some of these applications, and I will discuss plans for my current sabbatical.
