Abstract(in English) When people talk to each other, one selects what to say and how to say it by guessing other participants' mental states for efficient communication. Even when the speaker utters few words, hearers can often determine what the speaker want to say by using other information such as visual observations. Machines should also have such inference mechanism when they talk to humans or when robots work together with poor communication channels. We proposed an efficient method to estimate others' knowledge (beliefs) by using observations such as visual information, evaluated its quality quantitatively, and shed lights on its logical meaning. Here we explain our results and related works briefly.
