A rule-based approach to norm-oriented programming of electronic institutions

A. García-Camino, J. A. Rodríguez-Aguilar, C. Sierra, W. Vasconcelos
2006 ACM SIGecom Exchanges  
Our rule-based formalism includes constraints for more expressiveness and precision and allows the norm-oriented programming of electronic institutions: normative aspects are given a precise computational  ...  Our formalism has been conceived as a machine language to which other higher-level normative languages can be mapped, allowing their execution, as we illustrate with a selection of examples from the literature  ...  This is what we mean by norm-oriented programming.  ...

Constraint rule-based programming of norms for electronic institutions

Andrés García-Camino, Juan A. Rodríguez-Aguilar, Carles Sierra, Wamberto Vasconcelos
2008 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
Our rule-based formalism includes constraints for more expressiveness and precision and allows to supplement (and implement) electronic institutions with norms.  ...  In this paper, we propose a rule language to specify and explicitly manage the normative positions of agents (permissions, prohibitions and obligations), with which distinct deontic notions and their relationships  ...  Norm-Oriented Programming of Electronic Institutions Despite successfully achieving a significant degree of openness, electronic institutions are strict in the sense that only specify what utterances are  ...

2013 Dagstuhl Publications  
This chapter takes a closer look at computational logic approaches for the design, verification and the implementation of normative multi-agent systems.  ...  The authors in [51] propose a language that deals with automated conflict detection in norms by using a tool that supports ontologies and translates normative propositions into a Prolog program.  ...  One of the early specification tools of multi-agent systems in terms of institutional rules and norms is ISLANDER [36] based on the concepts of electronic institutions as proposed in [74] .  ...

Using SOA Provenance to Implement Norm Enforcement in e-Institutions [chapter]

Javier Vázquez-Salceda, Sergio Alvarez-Napagao
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To do so we include a provenance mechanism as part of our norm enforcement mechanisms, which can be integrated into a SOA Governance workflow.  ...  As both Web services and Grid computing are based in the concept of service orientation, where all computation is split in independent, decoupled services, there is an opportunity for MAS researchers to  ...  Javier Vázquez-Salceda's work has been also partially funded by the "Ramón y Cajal" program of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.  ...

TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AGENT-BASED ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH MDD

JORGE AGÜERO, CARLOS CARRASCOSA, MIGUEL REBOLLO, VICENTE JULIÁN
2013 International journal on artificial intelligence tools  
This paper presents an approach to develop and deploy organization-oriented Multi-Agent Systems using a model-driven approach.  ...  Based on this idea, we introduce a relatively generic agent-based meta-model for a Virtual Organization, which was created by a comprehensive analysis of the organizationoriented methodologies used in  ...  This has led to a new approach called organization-oriented methodologies.  ...

Computational Institutions for Modelling Norm-Regulated MAS: An Approach Based on Coordination Artifacts [chapter]

Rossella Rubino, Andrea Omicini, Enrico Denti
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As agent autonomy emphasises the need of norms for governing agent interactions, increasing attention is being devoted to (electronic) institutions for modelling organisations governed by norms.  ...  notion of Computational Institution for modelling norm-regulated MAS.  ...  So, the electronic institution norms can be seen as a subset of the normative system norms.  ...

2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
These models will enable the verification of the interaction in the MAS, thanks to the introduction of a novel social semantics of interaction based on commitments and on an explicit account of the regulative  ...  The aim of the work is to develop formal models of interaction and of the related support infrastructures, that overcome the limits of the current approaches.  ...  In this respect, one interesting possibility would be to use an approach based on a social and observational semantics, like the commitment-based approach [30] .  ...
