... • The importance of modeling the other agents in the environment
– The point that one reason why our brains are so large, evolutionarily
speaking, may be that we needed them to outwit not other animals but our
... Trading agents have become a prominent application area of artificial intelligence because of their
potential for transforming electronic commerce, and because they present a stiff challenge to models
of rational decision-making. A wide variety of trading scenarios and agent approaches have been

... Here is a list of topics from AAMAS, a top agent conference. It is not inclusive. Be sure that
your topic (1) involves multiple agents (2) is not just a parallel solution (without agency). You
are welcome to blend this assignment with other work you have to do, as long as it fits within the

... Effects of synthetic language variety on personality perception and the socio-emotional
evaluation in artificial agents
Research on intelligent agents has demonstrated that the degree an artificial entity resembles a
human correlates with the likelihood that the entity will evoke social and psycholo ...

... • The environments for EC are getting more “open”
• Contacts between systems are more “peer-to-peer”
• Applications get more distributed (outsourcing of
tasks becomes common)
• Systems have to be personalized, thus adaptive
... •In near future computers will have
–As many processing elements as our brain,
–But far fewer interconnections
–Much faster updates.

Brains (human minds)
are very good at making
rational decisions (but
“Brains are to

Learning in Markov Games with Incomplete Information
... (Littman 1994). In a Markovgame, there are n agents,
each facing a Markov decision process (MDP). All
agents’ MDPsare correlated through their reward functions and the state transition function. As Markovdecision process provides a theoretical frameworkfor singleagent reinforcement learning, Markov ...

... section that reports the experimental data given various environmental conditions,
knowledge bases, or representations. The code will also be judged on software
engineering terms, including modularity and understandability. This requires that the
code be documented well and written cleanly.

Behaviors are arranged into layers, so that lower layers inhibit
higher one. The lower layers have the higher priority.

Agent (The Matrix)
Agents are a group of characters in The Matrix franchise. They are sentient computer programs carefully disguised like average-looking human males, displaying a high-level of artificial intelligence.Agents are representatives within the Matrix fictional universe. They are guardians within the computer-generated world of the Matrix, protecting it from anyone or anything (most often Redpills) that could reveal it as a false reality or threaten it in any other way.Agents also hunt down and terminate any rogue programs, such as The Keymaker, which no longer serves a purpose to the overall Machine objective. They physically appear human, but have a tendency to speak and act in highly precise and mechanical ways.
