The Multi-Agent Programming Contest: A résumé [article]

Tobias Ahlbrecht
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The Multi-Agent Programming Contest, MAPC, is an annual event organized since 2005 out of Clausthal University of Technology. Its aim is to investigate the potential of using decentralized, autonomously acting intelligent agents, by providing a complex scenario to be solved in a competitive environment. For this we need suitable benchmarks where agent-based systems can shine. We present previous editions of the contest and also its current scenario and results from its use in the 2019 MAPC with

A Scalable Runtime Platform for Multiagent-Based Simulation [chapter]

Tobias Ahlbrecht, Jürgen Dix, Michael Köster, Philipp Kraus, Jörg P. M"uller
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using purely agent-based platforms for any kind of simulation requires to address the following challenges: (1) scalability (efficient scheduling of agent cycles is difficult), (2) efficient memory management (when and which data should be fetched, cached, or written to / from disk), and (3) modelling (no generally accepted meta-models exist: what are essential concepts, what implementation details?). While dedicated professional simulation tools usually provide rich domain libraries and

We are trying to bridge this gap by developing a distributed, scalable runtime platform for multiagent simulation, MASeRaTi , addressing the three problems mentioned above. It allows to plug-in both dedicated simulation tools (for the macro view) as well as the agentization of certain components of the system (to allow a micro view). If no agent-related features are used, its performance should be as close as possible to the legacy system used.

Agent-Based Simulation for Software Development Processes [chapter]

Tobias Ahlbrecht, Jürgen Dix, Niklas Fiekas, Jens Grabowski, Verena Herbold, Daniel Honsel, Stephan Waack, Marlon Welter
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Software development is a costly process and requires serious quality control on the management level: Managing a project with more than 10 programmers over several years is a highly nontrivial task. We are building tools for helping the manager to predict the future development of the project based on certain adjustable parameters. The main idea is to view the software process as agent-based simulation in a multiagent system (MAS). This approach requires to combine three different areas: (1)

Agents and Robots for Reliable Engineered Autonomy:A Perspective from the Organisers of AREA 2020

Rafael C. Cardoso, Angelo Ferrando, Daniela Briola, Claudio Menghi, Tobias Ahlbrecht
2021 Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks  
Multi-agent systems, robotics and software engineering are large and active research areas with many applications in academia and industry. The First Workshop on Agents and Robots for reliable Engineered Autonomy (AREA), organised the first time in 2020, aims at encouraging cross-disciplinary collaborations and exchange of ideas among researchers working in these research areas. This paper presents a perspective of the organisers that aims at highlighting the latest research trends, future

Risk prediction of bleeding and MACCE by PRECISE-DAPT score post-PCI

2021 International Journal of Cardiology: Heart & Vasculature  
Guidelines recommend the PRECISE-DAPT (PD) score to adapt duration of dual antiplatelet therapy due to bleeding risk. However, there is first evidence that PD predicts mortality and ischemic events as well. We investigated PD Score in 994 patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PD was correlated with clinically frequently used scores. Major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE) and Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) bleeding were assessed during one-year

Rate of major and minor bleeding was higher in the PD ≥ 25 group (major bleeding: Hazard ratio [HR] 2.9, 95% confidence interval [Cl] 1.01-8.16, p = 0.049; minor bleeding: HR 3.94, 95% Cl 1.36-9.19, p = 0.0096). Rate of MACCE, death and myocardial infarction were higher as well (MACCE: HR 2.0, 95% Cl 1.52-2.71, p < 0.0001; death: HR 3.9, 95% Cl 2.12-5.68, p < 0.0001; MI: HR 2.1, 95% Cl 1.26-3.43, p = 0.0041). Rate of stroke/transient ischemic attack did not differ between groups. Discriminative potency to predict major and minor bleeding, MACCE, death and MI were high with nearly equal cut-off values calculated by Youden's index (YI) (major bleeding: Area under the curve [AUC] 0.66; p = 0.026; YI 32; minor bleeding: AUC 0.72; p = 0.001; YI 28; MACCE: AUC 0.62; p < 0.0001; YI 24). In our cohort, PD score predicted bleeding moderately in post-PCI patients. In this study, ischemic events were predicted as well. Adaption of antiplatelet therapy duration by PD score is accurate. Nevertheless, it should be well-balanced with patient-related risk for ischemic events.
