DNA-based nanonetworks have a wide range of promising use cases, especially in the field of medicine. With a large set of agents, a partially observable stochastic environment, and noisy observations, such nanoscale systems can be modelled as a decentralised, partially observable, Markov decision process (DecPOMDP). As the agent set is a dominating factor, this paper presents (i) lifted DecPOMDPs, partitioning the agent set into sets of indistinguishable agents, reducing the worst-case space required, and (ii) a nanoscale medical system as an application. Future work turns to solving and implementing lifted DecPOMDPs.
