Romain Billot (DECIDE Team) has received the best paper award at the national conference on agent-based systems "les journées francophones de systèmes multi-agents" for the paper "a constructivist approach for road traffic control" written with Maxime Guériau, Frédéric Armetta, Salima Hassas, and Nour-Eddin El Faouzi. This work results from a joint collaboration between three labs : LIRIS (Lyon 1), LICIT (IFSTTAR) and Lab-STICC (IMT Atlantique).
Abstract of the paper: Decision making in autonomous systems is particularly challenging in unknown and changing complex environments, where providing a complete a priori representation is not possible. To illustrate the problem, we consider a decentralized control of road traffic, where a control device of the distributed infrastructure locally controls traffic by sending recommendation messages to connected vehicles. We propose an approach able to combine, without prior domain-knowledge, a set of existing traditional unsupervised learning methods that collaborate as a population of agents in order to build an efficient representation. Our approach follows a constructivist learning perspective,where the population of agents is able to collectively build a representation that dynamically combines discretizations from the individuals.Journées francophones de systèmes multi-agents
