11:00 - 13:00: Invited Lecture on "A Multi-Agent Organization to Support Group Activities" by Moser Fagundes




In the SEATEAMS project, we aim to help the coordination of the activities of groups of users who share certain tasks. In particular, we are working towards automatically recognizing the context of each user, in particular which task each user is trying to accomplish. In this presentation, we will talk about the interaction patterns we use for information exchange among Jason agents running in portable devices in order to determine the context needed to make those context recognitions. We also present an extension of the symbolic plan recognizer SBR to deal with ambiguity in plan recognition under time constraints.
