This paper describes Soccer Server, a simulator of the game of soccer designed as a test-bench for evaluating multi-agent systems and cooperative algorithms. In real life, successful soccer teams require many qualities, such as basic ball control skills, the ability to carry out plans, and teamwork. We believe that simulating such behaviors is a signi cant(More)
attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. The first RoboCup competition will be held at the Fifteenth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Nagoya, Japan. A robot team must actually perform a soccer game, incorporating(More)
RoboCup Challenge o ers a set of challenges for intelligent agent researchers using a friendly competition in a dynamic, real-time, multiagent domain. While RoboCup in general envisions longer range challenges over the next few decades, RoboCup Challenge presents three speci c challenges for the next two years: (i) learning of individual agents and teams;(More)

Abs t rac t . RoboCup is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and exaznined. The first R o b o C u p competition was held at IJCAI-97, Nagoya. In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated(More)
To understand the molecular mechanisms intrinsic to reproductive organ development a cDNA microarray, fabricated from flower bud cDNA clones, was used to isolate genes, which are specifically expressed during the development of the anther and pistil in Lotus japonicus. Cluster analysis of the microarray data revealed 21 and 111 independent cDNA groups,(More)
From the standpoint of multi-agent systems, soccer (association football), which is just one of usual team sports, make a good example of problems in the real world which is moderately abstracted. We have chosen soccer as one of standard problems for the study on multi-agent systems, and we are now developing a soccer server, which provides a common(More)
In an attempt to promote artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics research, RoboCup (Robot World Cup) was organized to provide a common environment for the evaluation of various theories, algorithms, and agent architectures [2]. In order for the robot (physical robot and software agent) to play a soccer game reasonably well, a wide range of technologies(More)
Games and Conferences, was held at the Fifteenth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. There were two leagues: (1) real robot and (2) simulation. Ten teams participated in the realrobot league and 29 teams in the simulation league. Over 150 researchers attended the technical workshop. The world champions are CMUNITED (Carnegie Mellon(More)
