Guido Boella, Rossana Damiano
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
model an agent who reacts to contextually instantiated norms by monitoring for norm instantiation and replanning its current intentions.  ...  We present a reactive agent architecture which incorporates decision-theoretic notions to drive the deliberation and meta-deliberation process, and illustrate how this architecture can be exploited to  ...  In section 2, we described an architecture for reactive agents, focussing on how the agent modifies its current intentions depending on how the changes of a dynamic environment affect the utility provided  ...

2010 International Journal of Artificial Life Research  
Imagine a simple reactive agent that can only move towards and collect a resource in the environment.  ...  .  Update the table entry for Q value using an appropriate rule, for example, New Q(s, a) = Old Q(s, a) + (r(s) -r(s'))/ r(s).  ...  This layer uses Norms to configure the architecture. Norms are rules that a group uses for appropriate (and inappropriate) values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours (Kahneman & Miller, 1986) .  ...

A Multi-agent Architecture for CSCW Systems: From Organizational Semiotics Perspective [chapter]

Wenge Rong, Kecheng Liu
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We explain the components of this multi-agent architecture and design process. It is argued that this approach provides a new perspective for modelling CSCW systems.  ...  From this point of view, we investigate the possibility of modelling CSCW by agent technology, and then based on organizational semiotics method a multi-agent architecture is proposed via using EDA agent  ...  [7] argues that the most emphasized abilities of an agent or agent-based system should include autonomy, reactivity and social abilities.  ...

TAO+: Extending the Conceptual Framework TAO to Support Internal Agent Architectures in Normative Multi-Agent Systems

Emmanuel Sávio Silva Freire, Enyo José Tavares Gonçalves, Mariela Inés Cortés, Yrleyjânder Salmito Lopes, Marcius Gomes Brandão
2013 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
The existence of Normative Multi-Agent Systems, where the interaction between agents with different internal architectures is governed by norms, promotes the existence of an ontology suitable to define  ...  However, TAO foresees limited support for representing the norm concepts and the different agent architectures. This paper describes the extension of TAO to allow the representation of these concepts.  ...  Internal Architectures Internal architectures can be classified through the concepts of reactivity and proactivity.  ...

Informed Deliberation During Norm-Governed Practical Reasoning [chapter]

Martin J. Kollingbaum, Timothy J. Norman
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The NoA architecture for norm-governed agents implements a computationally efficient mechanism for identifying and indicating such problems -possible candidates for action are assigned a specific label  ...  In adopting different sets of norms, an agent may experience conflicts between these norms as well as inconsistencies between possible actions for fulfilling its obligations and its currently adopted set  ...  NoA is a reactive planning architecture [8, 10] , where the behaviour of an agent is determined by pre-specified plans.  ...

Norm Adoption and Consistency in the NoA Agent Architecture [chapter]

Martin J. Kollingbaum, Timothy J. Norman
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper addresses the problem of finding a pragmatic solution to the problem of norm consistency checking for practical reasoning agents in the context of the NoA Normative Agent Architecture.  ...  Adoption of norms can cause problems -an agent maybe already hold norms that would be in conflict or inconsistent with new norms it adopts.  ...  The intention for NoA agents is to be situated in a real, changing world. NoA is therefore based on a reactive planning architecture.  ...

Agent Architectures for Compliance [chapter]

Brigitte Burgemeestre, Joris Hulstijn, Yao-Hua Tan
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A Normative Multi-Agent System consists of autonomous agents who must comply with social norms. Different kinds of norms make different assumptions about the cognitive architecture of the agents.  ...  In this paper we present several cognitive agent architectures for self-monitoring and compliance.  ...  Therefore this architecture is called a reactive agent architecture.  ...

2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Moreover, we identify two different perspectives on autonomy, namely external and internal, and we show that the later can be used to build an integrated analysis grid of agent architectures for multi-agent  ...  Despite the fact that autonomy is a central notion in most agents' definitions and it is by itself a subject of research in the multi-agent field, there is not yet a commonly agreed definition of it.  ...  Cristiano Castelfranchi for the precious comments regarding the ideas proposed in this paper.  ...
