Complex Systems Modeling

Professsor Jose Manuel Lopez-Guede
Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz
University of the Basque Country

Abstract: Complex systems modeling is still an open field where more efforts are needed. There are clasic techniques that have shown to be valid when dealing with simple systems, but have clear limitations when capturing the behaviour of complex ones. So, now some artificial intelligence based modeling techniques have chance to show their capabilities. Robotics is a field where complex behaviours takes place, even more when the aim of the application is the autonomous learning of a group of robots is involved. In this lecture we are going to review some methods for autonomous learning and for modeling the knowledge acquired by the previous methods, especifically to deal with complex groups of robots.
