The Autonomous Agents Research Group is a research unit directed by Dr. Stefano V. Albrecht in the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh. The group specialises in the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies for autonomous systems control and decision making in complex environments. Current research focuses on algorithms for deep reinforcement learning, multi-agent reinforcement learning, and foundation models (e.g. LLMs) for autonomous systems. The group also collaborates closely with industry partners, including in sectors such as autonomous driving, warehouse automation, and intra-logistics. We are a member of the ELLIS European network of excellence in machine learning research.
