NWO award a VIDI grant to Ming Cao for his research proposal “An evolutionary approach to coordination of self-interested agents”. Robot and sensor networks, distributed energy grids and many facets of society can be modelled as complex networks of agents making self-interested decisions that often conflict with group objectives. Ming Cao will seek methods for coordinating these networks and ultimately resolving such social dilemmas through a closely-coupled approach of theory and experimentation. More here.
