Artificial Intelligence and Multi-agent Systems Group


We are doing research on cognitive multi-agent systems, with special interest in coordination mechanisms, automated negotiation, multi-agent learning, MAS architectures and autonomy. We are investigating conceptual models to support constructive on-line group learning, and agent-based tools for cooperative learning and tele-working.

We are also interested in developing hybrid agent models based on the symbolic and evolutionary paradigms, and models of affective agents.

The targeted areas of applications are organisation coordination, in particular virtual organisations, e-commerce, virtual environments for learning, and CSCW .

The leader of the group is Adina Magda Florea, Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Computer Science, "Politehnica" University.
