2) Many aspects of autonomy require the ability to use maths to model the interaction between an agent (e.g. an organism, robot or piece of software) and its environment. The interaction may be physical (i.e. how the world reacts to movement and impacts), causal/logical (i.e. how a sequence of interactions change the organisation of the environment), probabilistic (i.e. not fully predictable), social (when one agent interacts with other agents), or some collection of all these of types of interactions (and others!). The world of science is full of such models, including rational decision making in economics, population dynamics in ecology, forecasting in climate science, planning in artificial intelligence, and dynamics models in engineering.

 

Your task is to research a model of your choosing and present it in a report of maximum two A4 pages (minimum font size 11pt). Your report should describe the model, including how (and ideally why) the mathematics works, and show how it is applied. We are particularly looking for submissions that involve autonomous agents in some capacity, and go beyond what you have already learned at school.

Once complete, please send your report to felix.slade@pmb.ox.ac.uk
