ALADDIN: Autonomous Learning Agents for Decentralised Data and Information Networks

This project aims to develop techniques, methods and architectures for modelling, designing and building decentralised systems that can bring together information from a variety of heterogeneous sources in order to take informed actions. To do this, the project needs to take a total systems view on information and knowledge fusion and to consider the feedback that exists between sensing, decision making and acting in such systems. Moreover, it must be able to achieve these objectives in environments in which: control is distributed; uncertainty, ambiguity, imprecision and bias are endemic; multiple stakeholders with different aims and objectives are present; and resources are limited and continually vary during the system’s operation.

More specifically, the main aims of the project are:

To ensure the specific methods and techniques developed in the research fit together to give a coherent whole, the project will develop a number of software demonstrations. These will be in the broad area of disaster management.
