Agents with One-level Models

The next step is for the agents to keep one-level models of the other agents. This means that it has no idea of what the interior (i.e. ``mental'') processes of the other agents are, but it recognizes the fact that there are other agents out there whose behaviors influence its rewards. The agent, therefore, can only model others by looking at their past behavior and trying to predict, from it, their future actions.
