Research Objectives and Areas:

Collective behaviors of any beings as well as reactions to certain (might be enforced) feeds in social/behavioral settings have always puzzled me. I am interested in understanding such a collaborative life while adapting to dynamic changes of actors, objectives and in some cases the purpose of existence.

To this point, I design semantics as well as mathematical models for adaptive organizations based multi-agent systems where semi-autonomous agents dwell in a dynamic network of interactions.

My focus broadly encompass:


News and Updates:

  1. Dissertation is highlighted in ACM AI-Matter, Vol. 2(4).
  2. The special issue, titled "Networked Agents of Complex Online Organisations," has been published in the IJCIStudies, V-5, N-2, 2016.
  3. Is the "Internet of Agents" (IoA) proposing new solutions to many problems in the MAS and IoT fields? Co-charing a new workshop that tackles this problem and more to be held in conjunction with WI conference in Omaha this October 13. [Deadline: June 1].
  4. Glad to see that the SNO paper, proposed in 2012, has an impact on Dr. Pruñonosa to provide directions for future research on the area in his article, (partI) and (partII).
  5. A group of enthusiasts and I created a forum as an emailing list to notify you by current openings in the area of artificial intelligence. If interested, visit: [AI-JOBS]
  6. Meet me in MIPC workshop at AAAI'16. I'll be presenting new exciting formulas to measure synergy from benevolence. [initial results @ 2:45 — Paper ]
