An Application of Automated Negotiation to Distributed Task Allocation

Michael Krainin, Bo An, Victor Lesser
2007 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'07)  
Through automated negotiation we aim to improve task allocation in a distributed sensor network.  ...  Experimental results show that as compared to the centralized task allocation mechanism, the proposed distributed task allocation mechanism achieves almost the same level of social welfare but with a significantly  ...  To prevent these undesirable behaviors, we will use automated negotiation as a means of task allocation among MCCs. Many approaches have been used for task allocation in the past.  ...

Automated Negotiation and Decision Making in Multiagent Environments [chapter]

Sarit Kraus
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The focus of the survey is on negotiation of self-interested agents, but several mechanisms for cooperative agents who need to resolve conflicts that arise from conflicting beliefs about different aspects  ...  We present some of the properties of the approaches using our own previous work.  ...  In addition to the application of the strategic-negotiation model to data allocation problems in information servers, it was applied to resource allocation and task distribution problems, and the pollution  ...

Negotiation and cooperation in multi-agent environments

Sarit Kraus
1997 Artificial Intelligence  
Research in Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) addresses the problem of designing automated intelligent systems which interact effectively.  ...  To support this claim, we describe some of our projects, where we have successfully taken an interdisciplinary approach.  ...  For example, in the data allocation scenario, a player is a server and an agreement is a distribution of datasets to information servers.  ...

Using Trust for Heterogeneous Human-Robot Team Task Allocation [article]

Arsha Ali, Hebert Azevedo-Sa, Dawn M. Tilbury, Lionel P. Robert Jr
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Finally, we present some directions for future work, including the incorporation of trust from the human and human capacity for task allocation, and a negotiation phase for resolving task disagreements  ...  Trust is an important factor in teaming relationships, and can be used in the task allocation strategy. Despite the importance, most existing task allocation strategies do not incorporate trust.  ...  When agents have an understanding of how much they can trust each other to execute a specific task, tasks can be appropriately allocated.  ...
