2015-03-13    SILVER label from the FIWARE Lab Recognition & Reward Programme


Our Lab participates with the 'Crete Node' (openstack cloud infrastructure) in the FIWARE Lab Infrastructure Federation, a sustainable pan-European open federation of test infrastructures, realized by the XIFI project. The FIWARE Lab infrastructure federation comprises 19 nodes and as such it can cope with large trial deployments and can serve the various needs of a broad set of Future Internet users and experimenters. Recently, 'Crete Node' has participated in the FIWARE Lab Recognition & Reward Programme, based on 3 levels of engagement accreditation (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) and has received the Silver label complying with the Silver quality validation criteria of its infrastructure.

UPCOMING EVENTS
Jul-2015    AGT@IJCAI-2015: The First IJCAI Workshop on Algorithmic Game Theory
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Over the past fifteen years, research in theoretical computer science (TCS), artificial intelligence (AI), and microeconomics has joined forces to tackle problems involving incentives and computation. This research field, commonly named Algorithmic Game Theory (AGT), is becoming increasingly more relevant due to the prominence of the Internet as the computing platform. The Internet pairs the concepts of market and computation, thus paving the way to cross fertilization. AI, in particular, plays a double role in this new connected world. On one hand, we have intelligent algorithms working on our behalf, buying and selling physical and virtual goods at tantalizing speed, sharing sensitive and/or private user information, and in general trying to react rationally to complex incentives. On the other hand, algorithms form the infrastructure of the net, mediating the interaction of both humans and machines, and operating as mechanisms that impose incentives. Due to the invasive presence of incentives and the importance of rationality in decision making, the research in AGT is rooted in and has applications for a number of different academic disciplines. This is witnessed by the ever growing list of contributions published in classical TCS/AI venues as well as the creation of dedicated academic conferences and journals. With this workshop, we intend to bring together the rich variety of scientists that IJCAI attracts in order to have a multidisciplinary forum within which discuss and analyze current and novel challenges that the research in AGT faces. The workshop fits particularly well with the recent IJCAI Computer and Thought Awards; indeed, in the last 20 years, 6 out of the 12 winners had worked on topics in the intersection of AI and economics/AGT: specifically, Sarit Kraus (1995), Nicholas Jennings (1999), Tuomas Sandholm (2003), Peter Stone (2007), Carlos Guestrin (2009) and Vincent Conitzer (2011).
May-2015    The 6th Workshop on Cooperative Games in Multiagent Systems (CoopMAS-2015 @ AAMAS-2015)
Istanbul, Turkey

This is the sixth instantiation of this international workshop on cooperative games and multiagent systems, traditionally held as part of the AAMAS conference. The workshop is intended to focus on topics in cooperation in multi­agent systems, cooperative game theory, cooperative solution concepts, coalition formation, and applications. The use of cooperative game theory to study how agents should cooperate and collaborate, along with the related topic of coalition formation, has received growing attention from the multiagent systems, game theory, and electronic commerce communities. The focus of much of the current work in this area has been on exploring methods by which agents can form coalitions so as to solve problems of joint interest, make group decisions, and distribute gains arising from such cooperation. The domain of cooperative game theory is characterized by several unique features. First, the problem of finding good ways for agents to collaborate may require solving complex combinatorial problems, and is by itself an important research area. Second, in practice, collaborating agents are typically required to make collective decisions, coordinate and come up with joint plans. This requires designing appropriate methods for such interaction. Furthermore, in many such domains, agents are self-interested, i.e. each agent may have its own agenda or goal. Achieving stable and lasting collaboration in such environments requires careful planning. For example, gains from collaboration must be divided amongst the agents in certain ways, or the coalition would break apart. Finally, in certain such settings, agents must deal with human participants, who must be modelled properly in order to achieve good outcomes. As a consequence of the above features, solving problems in this domain requires designing sophisticated algorithms and mechanisms, bringing together state of the art methods from several fields. In many cases, to solve such problems one needs to take into account both computational and game-theoretic considerations, and occasionally also apply a heuristic approach. Cooperation is, and always has been, at the very core of multiagent systems research. Papers on cooperative games have been present in past AAMAS conferences (in sessions such as Game Theory, Coordination and Cooperation, Coalitions). One goal of the workshop is to gather together the researchers from the community to discuss current work in progress. The CoopMAS-2015 workshop will be an ideal environment to allow open discussion and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration. We believe such an exchange of ideas between researchers from various fields, such as game theory, artificial intelligence, combinatorial optimization and knowledge representation will make it possible to advance the state of the art in this field from both theoretical and practical perspective. We hope that the workshop’s informal atmosphere will encourage the participants to offer a wide range of methods to address problems of collaboration between agents, an will allow achieving significant progress in this area.

Jan-2014    FI-WARE Challenges at Campus Party Brazil 2014
Sao Paulo, Brazil (January 27-31, 2014)

Participation of the Intelligent Systems Laboratory with Interact (Cloud Motion Sensor Services). Interact is one of the 40 out of nearly 700 submissions from all over the globe that will compete in the finals at Campus Party Brazil 2014 as stated from FI-WARE! Interact is a Future Internet (FI) project that associates person’s surrounding motion sensor input devices that manifest a moving lucidness environment for gesture recognition. The project is currently integrated in the intellicloud infrastructure of the Intelligence Systems Laboratory, Technical University of Crete. People could use their hands to express themselves, and live their lives in Smart Cities thus could use next generation motion sensors as part of their everyday activities to interact with FI applications.

Interact project highlights new business openings for SMEs that develop motion sensor applications. The project utilizes motion devices in order to offer a cloud-based service and a motion sensor API for transforming specific hand language and gestures into text and voice.
