YODA: Yet anOther agent Description lAnguage

In this talk, we will discuss YODA (Yet anOther agent Description lAnguage), a language for describing Multi-Agent Systems.

  • 16.3.2023, 13:00 - 14:00

The next seminar in the ICE-TCS series will be given by Nicola Del Giudice (University of Camerino), on YODA, the description language that he is developing to reason on multi-agent systems. 

The talk will be held on Thursday 16 March, at 13:00, in room V105 at Reykjavik University. 

We will also stream it on Zoom: Meeting ID: 616 9209 3974 Passcode: 608070 - 

Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss YODA (Yet anOther agent Description lAnguage), a language for describing Multi-Agent Systems. The proposed framework permits describing an agent in terms of the actions it can perform and that are selected according to its state and a set of variables (sensors) that are observed from the environment. The execution of action can alter the agent state. YODA has been thought with keeping in mind that agents may not have access to information about the environment or may not be able to directly update their state. Moreover, there could be the possibility that they could not communicate with others. In our approach, the system should take over and provide useful information for the agent. YODA is equipped also with a specification language that has been implemented in Sibilla, a modular tool developed in Java for quantitative analysis of Collective Adaptive Systems (CAS). - Short Bio: Nicola is a PhD student in Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Camerino, Italy. He completed his Master's Degree course in Computer Science at the University of Camerino in 2020. Nicola's research interests regard the field of Artificial Intelligence, more specifically he is interested in studying Collective Adaptive Systems and Multi-Agent Systems, developing formalism, language and tools to forecast these kinds of systems. He is also interested in game studies, ranging from developing tools and games for cultural interests to applying his field of research in gaming.
