The course covers: definitions of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems, reasoning about agents' knowledge and beliefs, the BDI architecture, coordination mechanisms and distributed planning, high-level communication, automated negotiation, MAS learning, and intelligent agents in the Internet. The course comprises several exemplary MAS architectures and applications that emphasize the motivations for choosing the agent paradigm and the specific solution for solving a particular problem. By the end of this course, you will know: what ideas, new trends and new possibilities are offered by intelligent agents and MAS; what does the agent paradigm bring as compared to distributed processing or object oriented software development; build multi-agent systems or select the right MAS framework for solving a real-world problem based on concepts such as distribution of tasks, communication, cooperation and coordination of actions; use the agent technology in areas such as Internet information gathering, electronic commerce and virtual markets, distributed decision making, collaborative scientific work.
