He will work on the ADAPT project, targeting the electric energy sector.

Dr. Tiago Pinto, of Portuguese origin and a graduate of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (IPP) was awarded the Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship to collaborate with the BISITE research group of the University of Salamanca on the ADAPT Project.

The project aims to support adaptation decisions for the negotiation of agents in the electricity market and energy transactions within intelligent networks. Pinto obtained a total score of 4.8/ 5.0.

ADAPT supports the complementary fields of artificial intelligence and power systems, and proposes the development of a multiagent decision support system to assist in the negotiation process of various players involved in the Internet and the intelligent electricity market. ADAPT is composed of: (1) portfolio optimization that identifies the most lucrative business opportunities, including negotiations at the intelligent network level; and (ii) a decision support system for real negotiations using new automated learning techniques to select the most appropriate strategies for each context, while taking into account the negotiation profile of the opposing parties.

ADAPT includes the participation of Professor M. Wooldridge, from the University of Oxford, one of the most highly recognized international experts in multi-agent systems and automated negotiation.

Industry support for this project is even stronger with the participation of Engie (formerly GDF Suez), the largest energy provider in the world, which essentially ensures the validation of the developed DSS.

In addition to advancing in the fields of multidisciplinary research, ADAPT aims to impact the energy sector in the EU, the industry and the society as a whole, thus contributing to the effective integration of intelligent networks in a market environment, and a decrease in electricity prices through competition.
