Overview: This class will provide a solid foundation in the field of multiagent systems design and engineering. We study all the major MAS design techinques, agent architectures, and communication languages. We take a hands-on approach by designing and building robocup soccer teams and playing them against each other.
The class, therefore, has two components: theoretical and implementation. The theoretical component includes the lectures, readings from the textbook and papers, and several problem sets. The implementation component includes the programming assignments and final project.
The students form teams of 1 to 3 members. All of the programming problem sets and the final project will be done by teams, while the rest must be done individually.
About the Homepage: The class homepage contains a lot of useful information. There is a forum (message board) available for you to ask questions. This is a good place to have discussions about the robocup server and useful programming techniques. There is also a calendar, software, handouts, and copies of papers relevant to the class (see the menu bar on the left). Finally, there is a News section where I will post any relevant announcements. Please bookmark the classs homepage and check it often.
