Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to know principles, paradigmatic architectures and methods for developing single agent and multi agent systems, have a critical and informed view of strengths and limitations regarding agents and multi agent systems, towards designing and delivering such systems.
Specifically, students know and acquire the abilities to develop:
- Architectures of single and multi-agent systems
- Methods for agents coordination, collaboration and competition in specific settings and paradigmatic environments and problems
- Agents’ communication methods and protocols
Via the critical view of agents technology and experience in developing such systems.
- Agents: Principles, architectures and application examples
- Deliberation vs Reaction: Architectures
- Mental attitudes, states and their representation
- Multi-agent Systems: Interactions and dependencies
- Multiagent organizations and communication
- Cooperation and collaboration
- Agents communication
