A Dynamic Coordination Mechanism Using Adjustable Autonomy [chapter]

Bob van der Vecht, Frank Dignum, John-Jules Ch. Meyer, Martijn Neef
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a way to implement this in a multi-agent system. The agent is provided with reasoning rules with which it can control the external influences on its decision-making.  ...  Agents in an organization need to coordinate their actions in order to reach the organizational goals. This research describes the relation between types of coordination and the autonomy of actors.  ...  In this section we will argue why dynamic coordination mechanisms are relevant to achieve coordinated behavior in multi-agent systems.  ...

A development toolkit to realize autonomous and interoperable agents

Federico Bergenti, Agostino Poggi
2001 Proceedings of the fifth international conference on Autonomous agents - AGENTS '01  
Autonomy and inter-operability are two characteristics of software agents that are advocating agent technology as an ideal candidate to support next generation of software systems.  ...  The higher level, that we call the agent level, allows describing the agent in terms of its natural characteristics such as goals, beliefs and social organization.  ...  Modeling a multi-agent system at the agent level requires modeling the architecture of the multi-agent system and the interactions between agents.  ...

An Exception Management Model in Multi-Agents Systems

Belkacem Athamena, Zina Houhamdi
2017 Journal of Computer Science  
The purpose of this document is to examine the exception concept in MAS domain and to suggest a model adjusted to MAS challenges such as heterogeneity, openness and particularly agents' autonomy.  ...  Multi-Agents Systems (MAS) are modern approaches that need an additional investigation to improve their reliability and adaptability levels.  ...  Contextual autonomy represents the degree of agent autonomy toward other agents in a system. Agent Autonomy has an additional impact on MAS that is important and related to exception handling.  ...
