Folk Theorems for Multi-Agent Systems
Prof. Michael Wooldridge,
University of Oxford –
The Nash Folk Theorems are a collection of related results that characterise the Nash equilibria that can be sustained in repeated games. As the name suggests, the Folk Theorems are technically simple, but this simplicity belies the fact that they are of enormous significance. For example, it has been argued that they provide answers to fundamental questions relating to the structure and behaviour of human societies. In this talk, I will introduce the Folk Theorems, and then show how they can be applied in the context of multi-agent systems, to understand the equilibria that can be obtained in such systems.
I am a Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford, and a Senior Research Fellow at Hertford College. I joined Oxford on 1 June 2012; before this I was for twelve years a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Liverpool. In October 2011, I was awarded a 5-year ERC Advanced Grant, entitled “Reasoning About Computational Economies” (RACE).
I am a AAAI Fellow, an ECCAI Fellow, an AISB Fellow, and a BCS Fellow. In 2006, I was the recipient of the ACM Autonomous Agents Research Award. In 1997, I founded AgentLink, the EC-funded European Network of Excellence in the area of agent-based computing. I was program chair for the 19th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI-2010), held in Lisbon, Portugal, in August 2010. I will be General Chair for the 24th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-2015), to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Between 2003 and 2009 I was co-editor-in-chief of the Journal Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. I am an associate editor of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR) (2006-2009, 2009-2012), an associate editor of Artificial Intelligence journal (2009-2012) and serve on the editorial boards of the Journal of Applied Logic, Journal of Logic and Computation, Journal of Applied Artificial Intelligence, and Computational Intelligence.

The 13th Lisbon Machine Learning School | LxMLS 2023
The Lisbon Machine Learning Summer School (LxMLS) takes place yearly at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST). LxMLS 2023 will be a 6-day event (14-20 July, 2023), scheduled to take place as an in-person event.
The school covers a range of machine learning topics, from theory to practice, that are important in solving natural language processing problems arising in different application areas. It is organized jointly by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), a leading Engineering and Science school in Portugal, the Instituto de Telecomunicações, the Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores, Investigação e Desenvolvimento em Lisboa (INESC-ID), the Lisbon ELLIS Unit for Learning and Intelligent Systems (LUMLIS), Unbabel, Zendesk, and IBM Research.
Check online for information about past editions: LxMLS 2011, LxMLS 2012, LxMLS 2013, LxMLS 2014, LxMLS 2015, LxMLS 2016, LxMLS 2017, LxMLS 2018, LxMLS 2019, LxMLS 2020, LxMLS 2021, LxMLS 2022 (you can also watch the videos of the lectures for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020).
31st International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD 2023)
The 31st International Conference on Information Systems Development (ISD 2023) conference provides a forum for research and developments in the field of information systems. The theme of ISD 2023 is “Information systems development, organizational aspects and societal trends”. New trends in developing information systems emphasize the continuous collaboration between developers and operators in order to optimize the software delivery time. The conference promotes research on methodological and technological issues and how IS developers and operators are transforming organizations and society through information systems.
The ISD 2023 conference held this year also provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to promote their research, practical experience, and to discuss issues related to Information Systems through papers, posters, and journal-first paper presentations.
ISD 2023 will be hosted by Instituto Superior Técnico, in Lisbon, Portugal, on August 30–September 1, 2023.
