Just back from a trip to Finland, where I participated to a very interesting workshop: ANOCOS, standing for “Anomalous Dynamics in Complex Systems: From Chaos on Nanoscales to Search in Biology”.
Two papers recently appeared, on PLOS ONE and on Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
The first one is about a study on decentralised decision making in multi-agent systems. The study has been conducted in collaboration with Andreagiovanni Reina, Gabriele Valentini, Cristian Fernandéz Oto and Marco Dorigo. It propose a design pattern for the design of collective decisions in multi-agent systems, and provides a link between the (macroscopic) dynamics of the system as-a-whole, and the rules determining the (microscopic) individual behaviour of each agent in the system.
