This paper introduces a sequential estimation problem with two decision makers, or agents, who work as members of a team. One of the agents sits at an observation post, and makes sequential observations about the state of an underlying stochastic process for a fixed period of time. The observer agent upon observing the process makes a decision as to whether or not to disclose some information about the process to the other agent who acts as an estimator. The estimator agent sequentially estimates the state of the process. The agents have the common objective of minimising a performance criterion with the constraint that the observer agent may only act a limited number of times.
