What Are Autonomous Agents and Game Theory?
Session Description: Autonomous agent systems are already used in countless applications such as chatbots, email, vehicles, and manufacturing. This session will provide a gentle introduction to the science behind agent-based software and the application of game theory to blockchain technology. Discussion will delve into how game theory - an area of mathematics and strategic thinking - integrates with autonomous agents. This type of integration provides opportunities for applications in the areas of arbitrage, negotiation and optimization. For health systems, this has the potential to reduce friction between the provider and the consumer. The session will conclude with a simple example of a medical eligibility check as a proposed model for arbitrage and negotiation using autonomous agent-based game theory.
