Computer Science 383: Multi-agent and Robotic Systems will be offered in the spring semester on Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 1:30 PM with a weekly lab session on Tuesday at 2:30 PM.

A study of autonomous software agent and robotic systems and the principles, design, and implementation underlying such systems. Students explore how to design societies of agents and robots and how to monitor and control their operation. Unique challenges in this field and the wide range of existing solutions are examined. Topics include communication, coordination, and cooperation of software agents and robots from a variety of perspectives that include cognitive science, decision-theory, game-theory, machine learning, and software-engineering. Students are required to develop and evaluate several real multi-agent or multi-robot systems. One laboratory per week. Prerequisite: Computer Science 111.
