Abstract

Machine learning and artificial intelligence models that interact with and in an environment will unavoidably have impact on this environment and change it. This is often a problem as many methods do not anticipate such a change in the environment and thus may start acting sub-optimally.Although efforts are made to deal with this problem, we believe that a lot ofpotential is unused. Driven by the recent success of predictive machinelearning, we believe that in many scenarios one can predict when and how achange in the environment will occur. In this paper we introduce a blueprintthat intimately connects this idea to the multiagent setting, showing that themultiagent community has a pivotal role to play in addressing the challengingproblem of changing environments.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence models that interact with and in

Although efforts are made to deal with this problem, we believe that a lot of
potential is unused. Driven by the recent success of predictive machine
learning, we believe that in many scenarios one can predict when and how a
change in the environment will occur. In this paper we introduce a blueprint
that intimately connects this idea to the multiagent setting, showing that the
multiagent community has a pivotal role to play in addressing the challenging
