The ORCHID project at the Universities of Southampton, Oxford and Nottingham is addressing the challenge of building computational systems in which software agents and people interact. In this talk, I’ll give a brief overview of the project and then present two concrete examples of work to date. First, that of building a decentralised system for coordinating unmanned autonomous vehicles that uses loopy belief propagation and the max-sum algorithm to assign tasks to UAV , and second, that of building a home energy management agent that mixes both physical and statistical models of the thermal properties of a home, in order to provide households with realtime feedback about heating costs.
