Multiagent Systems for Social Computation: The SmartSociety approach

Located in Main Amphitheatre – Science bldg.
In track Research talks

SmartSociety is a large new EU-funded research initiative that attempts to build hybrid and diversity-aware collective adaptive systems to help address major societal challenges. For this, it aims at leveraging human-based computation supported artificial agents to exploit the complementarities that exist among human and machine intelligence. In this talk, we will present the envisioned Web architecture for this “human multiagent system”, and how existing AI and multiagent systems technologies can provide important algorithmic building blocks to enable large-scale social computations in real-world domains. Specifically, we will survey contributions from our own research on automated decomposition of planning domains, argumentation-based conflict resolution in multiagent planning, strategic multiagent planning, automated norm synthesis, and qualitative context mining that can be used in this context.
