The Autonomous Agents Research Group is a research unit within the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. Research in the group is centred on the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies toward the realisation of intelligent agents (such as software agents and robots) which can act autonomously to solve tasks in complex environments. The group has a strong focus on problems of coordination and cooperation in multi-agent systems, in which multiple autonomous agents interact in a shared environment. Current research focuses on inference and planning in multi-agent systems and algorithms for multi-agent deep reinforcement learning. The group is also active in the development of agent technology applications, including in the areas of autonomous driving, warehouse logistics, and cyber security.
