Project Details


We develop models and architectures for intelligently self-adaptive, collaborative software components. We combine research in software architectures with research in artificial intelligence, more specifically computational creativity. We use computational creativity to empower intelligent software components or agents with the capability to communicate and cooperate in novel and valuable ways in unanticipated situations. Work on self-adaptive and collaborative systems will advance the design of autonomous and resilient agents, with potential applications e.g. in industrial Internet-of-Things, in collaborating gadgets of a smart home, or in earthquake area rescue service with drones, crawlers and robots deployed in high numbers. Despite its basic research nature, the project has high potential for practical impact via the software-intensive industries.
