The SDK laboratory aims to develop intelligent processes and systems for decentralized decision-making and coordination. The methods and systems to be developed are to be applied both to scientific benchmark problems and to practical problems of companies from the region. The research work developed in the laboratory should be published in relevant peer-reviewed journals, if possible. Finally, another goal is to introduce students to research.
In the past, decision support systems were primarily used for central decision making (exactly one decision maker). The progress of information and communication technology increasingly motivates the development of decentralized decision making systems, which enable the coordination of several autonomous decision makers. In concrete terms, two research priorities are to be set with regard to processes and applications:
The algorithms and systems developed in the lab will be used in the following lectures to motivate the development of algorithms:
The developed systems are partly used as e-learning systems:
