Course Description:

This course mainly covers design and implementation of software agents within the scope of agent-oriented software engineering (AOSE). Topics include: Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (MAS), agent architectures, introduction of IEEE FIPA specifications, communication in MASs, interaction and cooperation in MASs, agent methodologies for MAS development, agents on the semantic web, MAS metamodeling and model driven development of MASs.

 

Prerequisites:

The course “0301537 Agent-oriented Software Development” must have been successfully completed prior to this course. Further, one or more MAS development projects are planned. Hence, students need to be fluent in Java programming language and have knowledge on the related software design principles since required MAS development tools are mostly based on Java.
