Towards an Ontological Learners' Modelling Approach for Personalised e-Learning
TLDR
We propose a Personalised Adaptive e-Learning system (onto-PAdeL) which uses an ontological approach in design-ing learners based on their abilities, learning style(s), prior knowledge and preferences. Expand

Dialogues incorporating enthymemes and modelling of other agents' beliefs
TLDR
This thesis provides a formal treatment of the utilisation of enthymemes in dialogical settings, and thus contributes to the formalisation of a key argumentative practice ubiquitous in real world dialogues. Expand

Peer-to-Peer Negotiation for Optimising Journeys of Electric Vehicles on a Tour of Europe
TLDR
We show how agent-based planning can improve the efficiency of a simple transport system and that peer-to-peer negotiation can be used to improve the degree to which preferences can be accommodated. Expand
Autonomous Economic Agents as a Second Layer Technology for Blockchains: Framework Introduction and Use-Case Demonstration
TLDR
We introduce a framework for the development of Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs), software agents that act autonomously and pursue an economic goal, and demonstrate how AEAs complement existing decentralized ledgers as a second layer technology. Expand
Assigning Likelihoods to Interlocutors' Beliefs and Arguments
TLDR
This paper proposes mechanisms for agents to model other agents’ beliefs and arguments, thus enabling agents to anticipate their interlocutors’ arguments in dialogues, which in turn facilitates strategising and the use of enthymemes. Expand
