Colloquium: Changing the world: Arguments, Plans and Preferences, Yannis Dimopoulos (University of Cyprus, Cyprus), Monday, October 2, 2017, 10:00-11:00 EET.
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus cordially invites you to the Colloquium entitled:
Changing the world: Arguments, Plans and Preferences
Speaker: Yannis Dimopoulos
At a high level, intelligent agents operate in a dynamic environment which they constantly seek to bring to a desirable state. To achieve this, they employ a variety of techniques that allows them to choose among different alternatives, as well as decide the course of action that brings about the desired state. In this talk, we review recent work in various topics pertaining to the above problems. We start with a discussion of argumentation and its use in automated negotiation. Then we present results on encoding planning as a boolean constraint satisfaction problem, followed by a brief discussion of preference learning. We conclude with a glimpse at our current work.
Yannis Dimopoulos obtained his PhD in 1992 from the Department of Informatics, Athens University of Economics. From 1992 to 1998 he held research positions at the Max-Planck-Institut for Computer Science and the University of Freiburg, both in Germany. Since 1999 he is with the University of Cyprus. His research interests are in the area of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.
This colloquium is part of the speaker's procedure for evaluation and promotion from Associate Professor to Professor
