The autonomous agents lab has had a number of homes through its history.

We started out in incredibly cramped space on the fifth floor of Machray Hall (one office that was widened to two by removing a wall). As the number of students grew and the size of the projects we worked on demanded more floor space, we quickly outgrew this facility.

The department as a whole was cramped for space, and Physics kindly lent us space in a sub-basement whose previous incarnation was a control room for a cyclotron. This space became our satellite operation, which we affectionately referred to as the Dungeon. A number of generations of RoboCup teams were developed there.


With the construction of the new building, the lab found its current home, and we have a new space about equal to the combined older lab facilities. This is the facility we operate from today.
A Map showing the the location of the laboratory on campus is available.

We will be be attending RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, the first time RoboCup has come to Canada!

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.
