Agents in proactive environments

D. Gabbay
1999 Journal of Logic and Computation  
Agents situated in proactive environments are acting autonomously while the environment is evolving alongside, whether or not the agents carry out any particular actions.  ...  The capabilities of the agents are modeled by a set of conditional rules in a temporal-logical format. The environment itself is modeled by an independent transition relation on the state space.  ...  Conclusion and further work We have presented a temporal-logical language to model agents situated in proactive environments, and we have developed an abstract, general theory of such dynamic systems.  ...

Bio-inspired multi-agent data harvesting in a proactive urban monitoring environment

Uichin Lee, Eugenio Magistretti, Mario Gerla, Paolo Bellavista, Pietro Lió, Kang-Won Lee
2009 Ad hoc networks  
In typical urban sensing operations, multiple agents should collaborate in harvesting and searching for key meta-data in parallel.  ...  Thus, it is critical to effectively coordinate the harvesting operations of multiple agents in a decentralized and lightweight way.  ...  From this study, we showed that DTF effectively balances the movement of multiple agents and distributes them.  ...

Proactive and Reactive Coordination of Non-dedicated Agent Teams Operating in Uncertain Environments

Pritee Agrawal, Pradeep Varakantham
2017 Proceedings of the Twenty-Sixth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Existing research in task allocation has only considered fixed number of agents and in some instances arrival of new agents on the team.  ...  Domains such as disaster rescue, security patrolling etc. often feature dynamic environments where allocations of tasks to agents become ineffective due to unforeseen conditions that may require agents  ...  To that end, we first provide a general model for the study of non-dedicated agent teams operating in uncertain environments.  ...

Proactive or Reactive: An Analysis of the Effect of Agent Style on Organizational Decision-making Performance

Zhiang Lin, Kathleen Carley
1993 International Journal of Intelligent Systems in Accounting, Finance & Management  
This paper addresses the issue of agent style-proactive and reactive-from a theoretical perspective.  ...  The results show that agent style, though often considered key in decision making, only affects the organization's performance when the organization is under moderate time pressure.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported, in part, by the Office of Naval Research, United States Navy, under grant number N00014-90-J-1664.  ...

Enacting Proactive Workflows Engine in e-Science [chapter]

Ezio Bartocci, Flavio Corradini, Emanuela Merelli
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a software environment to dynamically generate domain-specific, agent-based workflow engines from workflow specifications.  ...  The workflow engine is a proactive multiagent system -a distributed, concurrent system-whose autonomous components interact in performing the workflow activities in a specific domain.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was partially supported by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), projects "Oncology over Internet (O2I)" and "Laboratory of Interdisciplinary Technologies in  ...

Reactive, Proactive, and Inductive Agents: An evolutionary path for biological and artificial spiking networks [article]

Lana Sinapayen, Atsushi Masumori, Ikegami Takashi
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Through in-vitro and in-silico experiments, we define the conditions necessary in a network with spike-timing dependent plasticity for the organism to go from reactive to proactive behavior.  ...  Complex environments provide structured yet variable sensory inputs.  ...  We then add actions back into the picture and discuss proactive agents. Predictions In Fig. 5 , the output of the network directly affects the environment.  ...

Team-based agents for proactive failure handling in dynamic composition of Web services

Xiaocong Fan, Karthikeyan Umapathy, J. Yen, Sandeep Purao
2004 Proceedings. IEEE International Conference on Web Services, 2004.  
The approach provides clear advantages for proactive handling of failures that may be encountered during execution of a complex web service.  ...  The team-based approach, with emphases on the sharing of mental models and proactive collaboration, provides an alternative to current static approaches to web service composition.  ...  Second, CAST agents are designed to proactively inform each other of changes in the environment that they perceive to handle any exceptions that arise in achieving a team goal.  ...

Quality Measures for Agent-Oriented Software [chapter]

Héctor Soza
2018 Multi-Agent Systems - Control Spectrum [Working Title]  
For this, we consider the three most important characteristics of a software agent: its social ability, autonomy and proactivity.  ...  The popularity of software agents and multiagent systems has increased, and this is now one of the most active areas in informatics research and development.  ...  The importance of proactivity is that it implies that the agent executes actions on his own initiative to achieve his objectives, interacting with the agents in the environment and reacting to the stimuli  ...
