Description

With the generalized use of "intelligent technology", the interaction between multiple smart devices poses interesting challenges both in terms of engineering and research. One interesting aspect of this phenomenon in the context of MAIS+S is the appearance of networks of heterogeneous devices that must operate in a fully distributed manner while sharing information necessary to complete some preassigned task. In MAIS+S, such complex networks are modelled as multiagent systems, by interpreting individual nodes or groups of nodes with autonomous agents. This interpretation suggests several interesting research avenues, some of which are the focus of the project.
