The final grades are now posted. Have a good break, you deserve it!

The game scores were:
But, do not forget to turn in your final writeups. Take a
look at the final project handout for the
specifics on what you need to hand in. The writeup is an important
part your grade for the project.
|Robocup Tournament Venue|
|Posted on Tuesday, 02 December 2003, 08:36AM|
The Robocup tournament will be held on Friday in 1D43, from
1pm-3pm, or until we are done. Each team must have a
representative there to run their software. In the tournament all
teams will play each other. The team that wins the most games
wins the tournament and (probably) receives an A for the final project
(I still need to see a writeup). In the case of a tie, the team with
the most goals, over all games, wins.
Make sure that your team has an original name that shows up on the
soccermonitor (that is, change the default team name). I also suggest
you have practice games against other teams before the tournament.

The soccerbeans page has been updated to include the manifest file, and Hrishikesh's presentation and Master's thesis.
|Test 2 Returned|
|Posted on Monday, 01 December 2003, 10:09AM|
As you might have seen, I posted the grades for Test 2 last
Wednesday. I have no placed the tests themselves on the envelope
hanging on the corkboard outside my office. You can pick yours up

PS 6 is now posted. Since I was a couple of days getting it out, Im
giving you a couple of extra days. It is due two weeks from now, on
|PS 5 Thoughts|

One of you pointed out that the mailmen might rationally choose not to
deliver any letter. This is true, but, it will depend on the reward
for delivering the letter versus the cost. I have not given you any
values for this. As such, your protocol must work for all possible
values. Specifically, when the reward is less than the cost of
delivering any letter, and when it is not.
|Time to Start Thinking Soccer|
|Posted on Friday, 10 October 2003, 12:42PM|
I have posted the final project handout. The new soccerbeans page is
now up. This is the software that you will be using (well, you can
write your own if you want to but that will take you months) for the
If you have any questions or suggestions on soccerbeans you can email
Hrishikesh at email@example.com. I will also be giving
you a questionnaire about your experiences with this software. It is
our first time using it in class and we are trying to determine how
well we can merge component-based and agent-based programming.
|Test Grades Posted|

The grades for the test have been posted. The actual test with
solutions has also been posted.|
Overall, you need to do the reading before each class, take good notes, and review them and my slides before the test. I don't think people are doing this.

I just emailed the grades for PS3. Please also check on the grades
link on the left to make sure my grades correlate with what you think.
|PS3 Due Time Changed|
|Posted on Tuesday, 30 September 2003, 11:34AM|
I have changed the time that PS3 is due to midnight (well, one second
before midnight) on Wednesday, the same day as before.
|Posted on Thursday, 25 September 2003, 11:22AM|
There was a bug in the cargo.nlogo file I provided in PS3. I have
fixed the bug and updated the file. The problem was that the robots
were being ask to ask all the robots to explode the mines, instead of
simply asking all the robots to explode the mines. Anyway, use the new
file. Thanks to Hong Jiang for noticing this!
|New Reading For DAML-S|
|Posted on Saturday, 20 September 2003, 12:09AM|
I added a new reading for the DAML-S talk. It is an excellent article
that provides the big picture view of how DAML-S fits within Web
Services and the Semantic Web (i.e., what I tried to tell you about in
|New MAS Textbook|
|Posted on Wednesday, 10 September 2003, 12:44PM|
There is a new MAS textbook available free to download: A Concise
Introduction to Multiagent Systems and Distributed AI by Nikos
Vlassis. I have not read it yet but I think you will find it useful,
especially during the second part of the course.
|PS 1 Moved Back|
