We model intention recognition within the framework of repeated interactions. In the context of direct reciprocity (Trivers, 1971; Nowak, 2006a; Sigmund, 2010) intention recognition is performed using the information about past direct interactions. We study this issue using the Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma (IPD), i.e., intentions are inferred from past individual experiences.
