Amii research featured at AAMAS 2021

Amii is proud to share the work of our researchers at the 20th annual International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS). The conference takes place online from May 3 to 7, 2021.

AAMAS is the largest and most influential conference in the area of agents and multiagent systems, bringing together researchers and practitioners in all areas of agent technology, as well as providing an internationally renowned, high-profile forum for publishing and finding out about the latest developments in the field.

Accepted papers largely focus on reinforcement learning, a branch of machine learning that enables AI systems to learn through experience; Amii researchers are pioneers and leaders in this area.

Amii Fellows and Canada CIFAR AI Chairs – professors at the University of Alberta – are included in the proceedings, as well as other Amii researchers (* indicates Amii researcher or alum):
