Teaching Staff: Your learning facilitator, called professor: Karl Lieberherr. Introduces you to software development technology and how to apply it to produce a successful agent that maximizes its life energy. Your learning facilitator, called undergraduate TA: Alex Dubreuil. Alex has done it before: Alex has written both an agent as well as the administrator (with help from Bryan Chadwick and feedback from the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 classes). Alex will supervise the agent competitions and maintain the administrator with Ahmed and Bryan. He will grade your quizzes. Alex will grade your sub projects and final project. Your learning facilitator, called team mate. Your important collaborator in the SCRUM approach. Your learning facilitators, called class mates. A very important resource. Class members will fill various roles. Your class mates will give you a lot of constructive feedback on your agent by accepting challenges from you and enticing you to buy their challenges, and making you lose money in both cases. For the money you have to pay, you get constructive feedback about what is wrong with your agent. In addition, Bryan Chadwick and Ahmed Abdelmeged will also be involved with the course. Over the summer, they developed the web version of the Specker Challenge Game. We will also use Bryan's DemeterF tool to make your agent read and write (following a grammar), walk and process its world effectively.
