Please consider joining us in Spring 2018 for a grad-level course on Bio-Inspired Coordination of Multi-Agent Systems (Tuesday/Thursday 1:25-2:40pm room TBD, the non-mandatory lab hours are Tuesday-Thursday 4.30-7.30pm). Students from all fields, including but not limited to engineering, business, architecture, and biology, are encouraged to join. The course will involve paper reading and discussions, as well as independent research projects on the topics of distributed control, robot collectives, and social insects. Please find more information here.
This is a highly interdisciplinary class, and we have very few pre-requisites. Most of the discussion topics will be rooted in robotics, algorithms, and social insects. Students are challenged to form unorthodox teams and conduct projects outside of their comfort zone (within the field of multi-agent systems).
On Thursday, Feb 1st, everyone will submit a ranked list of papers they would like to present. (Everyone has to lead one or more class discussions). Sign-up sheet to come.
