Congratulations to Dr. Fred Comeau!  Dr. Comeau successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation, Concepts and Prediction Machines, the day before Christmas Eve. Fred's doctoral program is in Individual Interdisciplinary studies, with Computer Science as his home department (along with Psychology and Philosophy). Fred worked previously with Dr. David Scuse in Computer Science, and moved to our lab upon Dr. Scuse's retirement. We send best wishes to Fred as he moves further forward in industry.

We came in third in the world in teen-size humanoids at RoboCup-2017, along with our partner, Amirkabir University of Technology, and took third place in the Technical Challenge!

The Autonomous Agents Laboratory is one of the research laboratories within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, and is directed by Dr. John Anderson and Dr. Jacky Baltes. The goal of our work is the improvement of technology surrounding hardware and software agents as well as the development of applications employing these technologies. We are especially interested in cooperation in multi-agent settings, and the infrastructure necessary to support this and other forms of social interaction in intelligent systems.
