The Teamcore group is focused on research driven by real-world problems.
Our roots are in Artificial Intelligence and within that in multiagent systems and computational game theory:
our research focuses on interactions of multiple intelligent agents, where these agents may be humans,
software agents, virtual agents, crowds, or robots.
Since typical real-world challenges of interest to us include problems in security,
safety and sustainability, our collaborations cut across disciplinary boundaries,
such as with the Game theory and human behavior group.
Indeed, we have established strong collaborations with faculty members in Psychology,
Operations Research, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Economics and several other
Our research interests span areas of computational and behavioral game
theory, multiagent and agent-human teamwork and team formation,
distributed team coordination and planning under uncertainty,
agent-based simulations, crowd simulation and contagion. Our research
has led to real-world deployments. For example, research on
computational and behavioral game theory has led to deployed systems
that schedule randomized patrols and checkpoints. This includes the
system deployed by the US Coast Guard in a number of ports
by the Federal Air Marshals service,
by the LAX airport and others.
