Reimplementing a Multi-Agent System in Python
We provide a brief description of our Python-DTU system, including the overall design, the tools and the algorithms that we used in the Multi-Agent Programming Contest 2012, where the scenario was called Agents on Mars like in 2011. Our solution is an improvement of our Python-DTU system from last year. Our team ended in second place after winning at least one match against every opponent and we only lost to the winner of the tournament. We briefly describe our experiments with the Moise organizational model. Finally we propose a few areas of improvement, both with regards to our system and to the contest.
