Co-Owner & Technology Director at Multi-Agent Technology, Ltd (Russia)
Founder, president and product/technology leader of international group of software companies focused on multi-agent solutions for solving complex problems.
Petr studied Computer Science in Samara State Aerospace University in 1997-1983. In 1983 he became engineer and then senior researcher in Physical Institute of Russian Academy of Science. He designed software for real-time control of physical processes in lazers, image processing and pattern recognition, modelling and simulations, expert systems. With the beginning of Perestroyka he organized software company ArtLog for delivering software in Russia, UK, Germany and USA.
In 1991 he met UK Prof. George Rzevski and they started first R&D projects on multi-agent systems. Together they designed intelligent simulation systems for engineers published in England and Germany. In 1997 Petr started Knowledge Genesis (Samara, Russia) for developing multi-agent e-government solutions. In 2000 Magenta Technology (London, UK) was organized for designing industrial multi-agent solutions for logistics, text understanding and data mining. Designed systems were successfully delivered for Tankers International, AON, GIST, Addison Lee, AVIS and other world-known companies.
Now he is working on new generation of distributed multi-agent solutions. The results are 40% increase of efficiency of mobile services for regional gas distributor, 10% increase in efficiency of workshops for National-size factory, high flexibility of scheduling of 3500 cargos for International Space Station, support of real time decision making processes for swarm of satellites, re-schedule high-speed trains in case of unpredictable events, 24% increase of profitability in supply chain for world-known manufacturer of toys, etc.
Petr got PhD degree in Functional Programming Languages in 1986 and Professor Degree in Multi-Agent Systems in 2003. Author of more than 150 publication and 3 patents on multi-agent systems and technologies.
