RoboCup Challenge offers a set of challenges for intelligent agent researchers using a friendly competition in a dynamic, real-time, multi-agent domain. While RoboCup in general envisions longer range challenges over the next few decades, RoboCup Challenge presents three specific challenges for the next two years: (i) learning of individual agents and teams; (ii) multi-agent team planning and plan-execution in service of teamwork; and (iii) opponent modeling. RoboCup Challenge provides a novel… Expand
Two Fielded Teams and Two Experts: A RoboCup Challenge Response from the Trenches
TLDR
This paper outlines the attack on the entire breadth of the RoboCup research challenge, on all of its categories, in the form of two fielded, contrasting RoboCups teams, and two off-line soccer analysis agents. Expand
An agent team for RoboCup simulator league
RoboCup is an attempt to promote AI and robotics research by providing a common task, soccer playing, for evaluation of various theories, algorithms and agent architectures. RoboCup consists of bothExpand
Layered Learning and Flexible Teamwork in RoboCup Simulation Agents
TLDR
"Layered learning" is described in which off-line and online, individual and collaborative, learned robotic soccer behaviors are combined hierarchically and achieved effective teamwork through a team member agent architecture that encompasses a "flexible teamwork structure". Expand

UFSC-Team: A Cognitive Multi-agent Approach to the RoboCup'98 Simulator League
TLDR
The UFSC-Team adopts a cognitive multi-agent approach where most part of the cooperation process is based on visual information and where the exchanged messages are just used to decide the role each agent should play in a predefined strategy. Expand
Opponent Modeling in RoboCup Soccer Simulation
TLDR
This paper presents an approach for creating and recognizing automatically the behavior of a simulated soccer team and considers this league as a multi-agent domain with adversarial and cooperative agents where the team agents should be adaptive to the current environment and opponent. Expand
Coaching a simulated soccer team by opponent model recognition
TLDR
An online method to provide the agents with team plans that a “coach” agent generates in response to the specific opponents, equipped with a number of pre-defined opponent models is introduced. Expand
