The Dynamic Selection of Coordination Mechanisms

Cora Beatriz Excelente-Toledo, Nicholas R. Jennings
2004 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
This paper presents and evaluates a decision making framework that enables autonomous agents to dynamically select the mechanism they employ in order to coordinate their inter-related activities.  ...  Using this framework, agents make informed choices about when and how to coordinate and when to respond to requests for coordination.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Rachel Bourne for her contribution to the formalisation of our model.  ...

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  
The dynamics and complexity of, for example, crisis situations require a crisis management organization to work with dynamic types of coordination.  ...  In order to reach dynamic coordination we provide the actors with adjustable autonomy. Actors should be able to make decisions at different levels of autonomy and reason about the required level.  ...  The mechanism should make sure the optimal decision maker is selected. In contrast, our approach focuses on the decision-making process of a single agent.  ...

The dynamics of intention in collaborative activity

Barbara J. Grosz, Luke Hunsberger
2006 Cognitive Systems Research  
The paper specifies a model of the dynamics of agent intentions in the context of collaborative activity and defines an architecture for a collaborationcapable computer agent based on that model.  ...  Through its integrated treatment of group decision-making and coordinated updating of group-related intentions, the model is able to fill an important gap in prior accounts of collective intentionality  ...  In the CCSP model, group decision-making mechanisms (GDMMs) enable agents to reliably establish group decisions for the purpose of coordinating the updating of their GAR intentions.  ...

Adaptive decision-making frameworks for dynamic multi-agent organizational change

Cheryl Martin, K. Suzanne Barber
2006 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
The approach proposed for selecting DMFs at run-time parameterizes all domain-specific knowledge as characteristics of the agents' situation, so the approach is application-independent.  ...  Specifically, ADMF can result in improved and more robust performance compared to the use of a single static decision-making framework (DMF).  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported in part by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (no 003658452) and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.  ...
