Agent-based software development

(Guía docente descargable)

The continuous search for more powerful and of a higher level new abstraction mechanisms has lead nowadays towards a new development paradigm, based on software agents. This approach, which has been so many times referred as the final solution for all the previously unaffordable problems, far from being a "silver bullet", must be considered as another software development paradigm and, as such, subject to the Software Engineering discipline.

This subject will introduce the students into this new paradigm, settling the basic concepts of the technology, offering them a wide perspective of the current Software Engineering efforts in this area, always from a practical and applied perspective.
