Agent-Based Systems (ABS)

Response to 2014/15 survey feedback.

I have taken note of the feedback provided through the Student Online Survey. I have the following responses/clarifications:

  • It is encouraging to see that the respondents report very positive views regarding the course overall.
  • I am aware of the weaknesses of the programming framework used for the assignments - unfortunately it is hard to teach agent-oriented programming using fairly compact, high-level languages without resorting to implementations that are not really industrial quality. I will continue to review and consider alternatives to resolve this issue.
