|Contents:||This course is about the theory of so-called intelligent agents, pieces of software that perceive, reason, and act while displaying some degree of autonomy. The agent concept calls for an integration of several topics in artificial intelligence, such as knowledge representation and reasoning (in particular reasoning about action and change) and planning.
Agent technology, as the field is generally called, has a great potential of applications, ranging from intelligent personal assistants to e-commerce and robotics. The course is devoted mainly to the philosophical and theoretical (mostly logical) foundations of the area of intelligent agents, both focusing on single agents and on multi-agent systems.
