Research topic | Mean field multi-agent systems in AI

We study AI systems with a large number of rational agents with mean field interactions. Theoretical questions remain open, specifically when related Nash or Pareto equilibria are not unique, and thus corresponding numerical and learning methods are key issues. Applications include neural networks, power grids, crowd management, cybersecurity, etc.
