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.
