The development of proficient automated agents has flourished in recent years, yet making the agents interact with people has still received little attention. This is mainly due to the unpredictable nature of people and their negotiation behavior, though complexity and costs attached to experimentation with people, starting from the design and ending with the evaluation process, is also a factor. Even so, succeeding in designing proficient automated agents remains an important objective. In recent years, we have invested much effort in facilitating the design and evaluation of automated agents interacting with people, making it more accessible to researchers. We have created two distinct environments for bargaining agents, as well as proposing a novel approach for evaluating agents. These are key factors for making automated agents become a reality rather than remain theoretical.
