To make things more explicit, we’ll now describe a simple joint behavior which is a prototype of many joint behaviors, namely the maintenance of affiliative relations in a group of agents by pairwise joint affiliative actions, usually called grooming. The social relations module contained a long term memory of knowledge of affiliative relations among agents. This was knowledge of who is friendly with who and how friendly. This module kept track of affiliative actions and generated goals to affiliate with friends that had not been affiliated with lately.

Chapter 3 MODELING SOCIAL RELATIONSHIP An Agent Architecture for Voluntary Mutual Control Alan H. Bond California Institute of Technology Abstract 1. We describe an approach to social action and social relationship among socially intelligent agents [4], based on mutual planning and mutual control of action. We describe social behaviors, and the creation and maintenance of social relationships, obtained with an implementation of a biologically inspired parallel and modular agent architecture.
