|Internet of Things (IoT) allows for cyber-physical applications
to be created and composed to provide intelligent support or
automation of end-user tasks. For many of such tasks, human participation
is crucial to the success and the quality of the tasks. The cyber
systems should proactively request help from the humans to accomplish
the tasks when needed. However, the outcome of such system-human
synergy may be affected by factors external to the systems. Failure to
consider those factors when involving human participants in the tasks
may result in suboptimal performance and negative experience on the
humans. In this paper, we propose an approach for automated generation
of control strategies of cyber-human systems. We investigate how
explicit modeling of human participant can be used in automated planning
to generate cooperative strategy of human and system to achieve a
given task, by means of which best and appropriately utilize the human.
Specifically, our approach consists of: (1) a formal framework for modeling
cooperation between cyber system and human, and (2) a formalization
of system-human cooperative task planning as strategy synthesis
of stochastic multiplayer game. We illustrate our approach through an
example of indoor air quality control in smart homes.|
