Multi-Agent Learning in Dynamic Environments Workshop

April 26 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

Blocker 128

Abstract: Multi-agent learning and decision-making in networked and dynamic environments are at the forefront of challenges that artificial intelligence faces. That is, how can a team of learners coordinate to do better when there are limitations and hurdles to their interactions in the form of privacy, communication, or security? How can agents learn, adapt, and decide in the presence of other agents who strive to make decisions to further their own objectives? This workshop on “Multi-Agent Learning in Dynamic Environments” aims to provide a landscape of recent research activities on multi-agent learning in dynamic environments, and foster potential collaborations among the researchers broadly working in the fields of reinforcement learning, game theory, optimization and control, and those that are interested in engineering and science applications of such methods. This workshop will consist of seminar-style talks followed by a discussion, and related short presentations.
