We are the academic lead for the Aspic project: an EU project looking at the different ways in which agents use argumentation - including reasoning, decision making, learning and communication. The goal of this project is a suite of software components to support these argumentation-based activities and a development platform for integrating these components with knowledge resources and legacy systems. The lab is also working on a successor to PROforma called TARGET. PROforma was developed in the lab as a language for representing clinical guidelines and can be considered as an agent specification language for a single agent that does not interact with other agents. TARGET is intended to be 'multi-agent enabled' successor to PROforma, providing, among other things, communication capabilities and plan repair. We have a researcher in the lab who is studying agent architectures and a PhD student looking at argumentation-based dialogues between agents.
