Summary: Increasingly intelligent and connected technologies are reshaping the nature of collaboration, business and work. These technologies will make possible entirely new forms of collaboration which will lead to significant opportunities for Australian government and industry. This project's objective is to develop and validate a new, pragmatic approach to the development of intelligent systems that can undertake collaborative action. Using formal logics and practical, hybrid models of collaboration, action and behaviour, the approach will allow smart buildings, smart homes and smart cities to share resources effectively and engage seamlessly with users.
