Title: Autonomous Agents for Flexible Hypermedia Systems (EMAS18-invited-talk-slides.pdf)

Abstract: The Web of Things community used to be driven by the application of Web technologies to enable flexible mashups of smart devices on top of the Internet of Things, an objective that we consider accomplished (from a research standpoint) in many different domains ranging from smart homes and cars to dynamic factories in the Industrie 4.0 paradigm. One of the next big things for us – consequently, perhaps, from an AAMAS standpoint – is to increase the autonomy of our Web-enabled devices and their understanding of one another, for instance by outfitting them with semantic descriptions of their properties and functions and, sometimes, even bestowing agency upon them. In this talk, I discuss this convergence that will enrich real-world devices with AAMAS technologies, and open up real-world applications to the AAMAS community, while examining important properties of the Web architecture that support flexibly interacting autonomous things on the Web.

Short Bio: Dr. Simon Mayer is leading the research group on Cognitive Products at Pro²Future. Before, Simon was part of Siemens' Web of Things research group in Berkeley, California in the role of a Senior Key Expert for Smart and Interacting Systems. His main research topics are aspects of integrating smart things into the Web, their semantic description, and infrastructures that support human users and machines in finding and interacting with the information and services provided by such devices. As a visiting researcher at the Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity at MIT in the year 2012, he was also working on robustly and securely bringing live data from automobiles to the Web. Simon graduated with a PhD in computer science from ETH Zurich.
