Discover emotional artificial intelligence.

Be a part of the future of AI.

I am Dr. Johnathan Mell, and I design socially-aware artificial agents. 

My lab at the University of Central Florida brings together computer science, interactive experience design, cognitive science, and business.  I’m part of UCF’s cross-disciplinary “Faculty Cluster Initiative” as a member of the Learning Sciences Cluster.

I developed IAGO: Interactive Arbiration Guide Online.  IAGO is a research platform for designing human-aware negotiating agents.  It is used by AI researchers, cognitive scientists, psychologists, and even clinicians.

If you are interested in using the Researcher’s Edition, sign up and download the IAGO API immediately.  For commercial use, please contact me directly.
