A Component-Oriented Framework for Autonomous Agents [chapter]

Tobias Kappé, Farhad Arbab, Carolyn Talcott
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
At run-time, these preferences provide a natural fallback mechanism for the component, while at design-time they can be used to reason about the behavior of the component in an uncertain physical world  ...  Using structures that tell us how to compose preferences and actions, we can compose formal representations of individual components or agents to obtain a representation of the composed system.  ...  Discussion In this paper, we proposed a framework that facilitates the construction of autonomous agents in a compositional fashion.  ...

Multi-Agent System Testing: A Survey

Zina Houhamdi
2011 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
The agent-oriented paradigm can be considered a natural extension to the object-oriented (OO) paradigm.  ...  Although there is a well-defined OO testing technique, agent-oriented development has neither a standard development process nor a standard testing technique.  ...  The agent oriented methodologies provide a platform for making MAS abstract, generalize, dynamic and autonomous.  ...
