Title: Distributed AI: Scalability, Efficiency, and Generalizability

Speaker: Bo An (President’s Council Chair Professor, Nanyang Technological University)

Abstract: Lately, there has been tremendous growth for artificial intelligence in general and for multiagent systems research in particular. Problems arise where decisions are no longer made by a center but by autonomous and distributed agents. Such decision problems have been recognized as a central research agenda in AI and a fundamental problem in multiagent research. This talk will discuss some of our recent works on distributed AI (using optimization technical and reinforcement learning techniques) and future directions.

Biography: Bo An is a President’s Council Chair Professor in Computer Science, and Co-Director of Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (AI.R) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He received the Ph.D degree in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His current research interests include artificial intelligence, multiagent systems, computational game theory, reinforcement learning, and optimization. His research results have been successfully applied to many domains including infrastructure security, sustainability and e-commerce. He has published over 150 referred papers at AAMAS, IJCAI, AAAI, ICLR, NeurIPS, ICML, AISTATS, ICAPS, KDD, UAI, EC, WWW, JAAMAS, and AIJ. Dr. An was the recipient of the 2010 IFAAMAS Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Award, an Operational Excellence Award from the Commander, First Coast Guard District of the United States, the 2012 INFORMS Daniel H. Wagner Prize for Excellence in Operations Research Practice, 2018 Nanyang Research Award (Young Investigator), and 2022 Nanyang Research Award. His publications won the Best Innovative Application Paper Award at AAMAS’12, the Innovative Application Award at IAAI’16, and the best paper award at DAI’20. He was invited to give Early Career Spotlight talk at IJCAI’17. He led the team HogRider which won the 2017 Microsoft Collaborative AI Challenge. He was named to IEEE Intelligent Systems’ “AI’s 10 to Watch” list for 2018. He was PC Co-Chair of AAMAS’20 and General Co-Chair of AAMAS’23. He will be PC Chair of IJCAI’27. He is a member of the editorial board of JAIR and is the Associate Editor of AIJ, JAAMAS, IEEE Intelligent Systems, ACM TAAS, and ACM TIST. He was elected to the board of directors of IFAAMAS, senior member of AAAI, and Distinguished member of ACM.
