At the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems our research is focused on the development of models and architectures for single- and multi-agent systems endowed with artificially intelligent behavior, on the one hand, and on ambient intelligence, smart web services, and web agents, on the other hand.
We believe that techniques and technologies from the field of artificial intelligence can improve the experience of the user and the performance of distributed systems, learning platforms, web services and applications in general.
The Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems is part of the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Control and Computers at University Politehnica of Bucharest.
The AI-MAS Lab is directed by Professor Adina Magda Florea.
We investigate issues related to coordination mechanisms, automated negotiation, agent learning, and affective agents. Recent endeavors relate to self-organizing systems and swarm intelligence.
A key aspect of the research is the development of technologies that enable agent models to be used in different areas of applications, such as e-commerce, e-learning, supply chain management, and ambient intelligence.
In the vast field of Ambient Intelligence, we work in the application of multi-agent systems in AmI, posture, activity and habit recognition, Ambient Assisted Living, and automating the user's tasks.
Recently, we have started to investigate issues related to self-organization of complex systems and how agents can contribute to the development of such systems.
The connection between web services, semantic representation, and agents on the Web is also one of our concerns. We direct our efforts towards developing agents that offer semantic web services to support different aspects of business processing and enterprise interoperability.
