Piter Dykstra has a PhD subject on the social behaviour of rational artificial agents. Of particular interest is the emergence of social behaviour by agents that reason on the basis of knowledge acquired by the communication with other agents in their social networks. The project is realized in the context of a cooperation agreement between the Hanzehogeschool Groningen and the University of Groningen. The supervisors are Gerard Renardel de Lavalette, Rineke Verbrugge and Wander Jager.
