Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI)
The Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) Group is carrying out theoretical and applied research in the domain of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. Theoretical work concerns problems of knowledge representation and reasoning related to different aspects of agents considered both as individual intelligent physical (robots), or software entities (e.g. argumentation and preference reasoning, automated decision making, planning), but also as communities of agents (e.g. automated negotiation, multi-agent planning, agent communication languages and dialogues, multi-agent learning, distributed decision making). The DAI group also carries out research in the domain of agent oriented software engineering. The applied research work concerns several domains as for example ambient intelligence, electronic services for mobile users, artificial markets, medical diagnosis, etc.
