Climate change intensifies the frequency and severity of floods - the most devastating and costly climate-induced hazard. Government adaptations such as dikes or beach nourishments are important, yet insufficient in the face of worsening hazards. They reduce the hazard probability, but the local actions at the household level determine the...

Law enforcement occurs in a complex environment that contains a variety of actors that interact with one another. These interactions create emerging collective behavior over time. For example, inspectors will try to influence non-compliant actors to become compliant, while inspectees may comply or thwart inspections. Inspection agencies such as...

Inspired by the vision of fully autonomous airside operations at Schiphol airport, this study aims to contribute to the short-term goal of automated aircraft ground handling. In this research, we design and evaluate a multi-agent system for planning of automated ground handling. There are two main components in the system, task allocation...

Amidst the discourse regarding the decentralization of urban energy systems, energy community has emerged as a solution for optimizing the electricity demand and distributed generation. Community energy projects also facilitate collaboration amongst local prosumers. An energy community is a collective of residential electricity consumers (or...

With the rise of digital technologies including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and sensor technologies, all the products we use every day are increasingly becoming ‘intelligent’. Machines, objects, and tools are slowly evolving into robots, objects-with-intent (Rozendaal et al., 2019), and agents. At the same time, their capabilities...

Over the past decade, renewable power generation through wind power has increased significantly. Especially the installation of offshore wind energy is expected to skyrocket to a total of 2000 GW by 2050. The majority of rights to develop and operate offshore wind farms are allocated through tendering procedures.<br/>In tender procedures,...

Enhanced textile reuse is required due to the textile industry's increasing environmental pressure. In order to reach this, behavioural change is necessary. However, it is currently unknown which changes in consumer values that determine textile reuse consumption are<br/>most effective. In addition, rebound effects appear: reuse lowers the...

Growth in air traffic demand and the increasing importance of reducing emissions cause airports to consider the improvement of their ground surface movement operations in terms of efficiency and environmental impact. Over the past years, engine-off taxiing techniques have been considered to reduce the environmental impact of airport taxiing...

Crowd management is a crucial element in keeping situations safe. Models can help understand in-event crowd management system more thoroughly, and illustrate potential effects of measures before they have to be implemented in real life. However, applications of crowd models for operational support on in-event crowd management are sparse. Two...

Digital challenger banks in the UK retail banking industry have caused unprecedented Personal Current Account (PCA) market share changes at the cost of traditional banks. This loss in competitive position prompted traditional bank managers to reconsider the way they operate, resulting in the commoditization of digital services till date. Now,...

In several experiments, enzymes have shown an in increase in diffusivity in the presence of their substrate. The enhancement in diffusivity ranged from as low as 28% for urease to 80% in the case of alkaline phosphatase. There are two main competing theories. One asserts that catalytically driven boosts propel the enzyme forward in ‘leaps’,...

The European Commission aims for a full circular economy (CE), an economy that aims to reuse all resources in 2050. CE is a promising way to increase welfare and wellbeing while decreasing environmental footprints. Industrial symbiosis, in which companies exchange residuals for resource efficiency, is essential to the circular transition....

In the field of cooperative AI, an environment is created called Overcooked AI based on the popular Overcooked game. Originally the environment is used to study deep reinforcement learning, on the other hand it also allows for cooperative planning methods of which the paper will focus on. These methods include coupled based planning with...

Agents trained through single-agent reinforcement learning methods such as self-play can provide a good level of performance in multi-agent settings and even in fully cooperative environments. However, most of the time, training multiple agents together using single-agent self-play yields poor results as each agent tries to learn how to perform...

A longstanding problem in the area of reinforcement learning is human-agent col- laboration. As past research indicates that RL agents undergo a distributional shift when they start collaborating with human beings, the goal is to create agents that can adapt. We build upon research using the two-player Overcooked environment to repro- duce a...

A virtual coach, Sam, was created by the Perfect Fit project to aid users in establishing a foundation to stop smoking via the means of making them more physically active. Data from 500 users had been collected from them during stages which start with a pre-screening phase until a post-questionnaire phase. In the latter stage, they provided a...

Human-AI teams require trust to operate efficiently and solve certain tasks like search &amp; rescue. Trustworthiness is measured using the ABI model; Ability, Benevolence and Integrity. This research paper tries to observe the effect a conflicting robot has on the human trustworthiness. The hypothesis we try to test is: “human trustworthiness...

The increase in health problems due to smoking or lack of physical activity has created the incentive to develop a virtual coach to help people with smoking cessation and increase physical activity. In this study, a mixed-methods analysis (thematic analysis, quantitative analysis, and a literature study) was carried out to find out what the...

Recent developments in applying reinforcement learning to cooperative environments, like negotiation, have brought forward an important question: how well can a negotiating agent be trained through self-play? Previous research has seen successful application of self-play to other settings, like the games of chess and Go. This paper explores the...
