Carbon Based autonomous agents

The same Darin that comes up with a lot of stuff that ends up here found a link to the Institute of the Future. They include stuff like coursework for their Institute of Human-Human Interaction. They have coursework up there that includes this class, with an abstract of :

The complexity and unpredictability of carbon-based agents has made HHI one of the most difficult concepts for computer scientists to grasp. This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of this often-overlooked field, including the pioneering research being conducted here at Carnegie Mellon University. Students will learn the algorithms and heuristics that form the basis of multi-agent interaction in a real-time environment.

Funny stuff.
