When Will Negotiation Agents Be Able to Represent Us? The Challenges and Opportunities for Autonomous Negotiators

Tim Baarslag, Michael Kaisers, Enrico H. Gerding, Catholijn M. Jonker, Jonathan Gratch
2017 Proceedings of the Twenty-Sixth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Much research has thus been expended to create agents that are able to negotiate in an abundance of circumstances.  ...  Computers that negotiate on our behalf hold great promise for the future and will even become indispensable in emerging application domains such as the smart grid and the Internet of Things.  ...  The viability of a negotiation query can for instance be measured in terms of the expected value of information [Boutilier, 2002] in order to assess the marginal utility of altering belief states.  ...

Aspire: an integrated negotiation support system and software agents for e-business negotiation

Gregory E. Kersten, Gordon Lo
2003 International Journal of Internet and Enterprise Management  
An agent monitors the process, facilitates the use of the Web-based negotiation support system, interprets the negotiators' activities and provides methodological advice.  ...  This led us to develop a Web-based integrated negotiation environment capable of supporting negotiators, providing context-dependent advice, and undertaking certain activities autonomously.  ...  An earlier version of the paper appeared in [42] .  ...

A generic negotiation and re-negotiation framework for consumer-provider contracting of web services

Werner Mach, Erich Schikuta
2012 Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Information Integration and Web-based Applications & Services - IIWAS '12  
Using the concept of autonomic managers gives the framework the ability to act as self governing system.  ...  An economic cost model considering variable cost and a business rule repository are main parts of the knowledge bases.  ...  None of these considers business rules to give answers to typical business strategy questions. Conclusively a model which considers both, energy-and costefficiency doesn't exist.  ...

Mechanism design for automated negotiation, and its application to task oriented domains

Gilad Zlotkin, Jeffrey S. Rosenschein
1996 Artificial Intelligence  
The analysis thus serves as a critical step in using the theory of negotiation in real-world applications.  ...  We here consider how concepts from game theory can provide standards to be used in the design of appropriate negotiation and interaction environments.  ...  Acknowledgements Some of this research was done while Gilad Zlotkin was at the Computer Science Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and was supported by the Leibniz Center for Research in  ...

Tawfik Jelassi, Gregory Kersten, Stanley Zionts
1990 Readings in Multiple Criteria Decision Aid  
It is based on the aspiration theory and utilizes both satisficing and optimizing approaches.  ...  Pareto optimal solutions are considered to be desirable in negotiations. If a solution is not Pareto optimal, that means that one or more parties can negotiate gains at no cost to the other parties.  ...  "From intent to outcome: a process framework for partnerships", August 1988.

GENIE: A decision support system for crisis negotiations

Jonathan Wilkenfeld, Sarit Kraus, Kim M. Holley, Michael A. Harris
1995 Decision Support Systems  
Experiments in which GENIE users participate are also more likely to end in agreement among thc parties, rather than in an outcome in which one of the parties opts out of the negotiation. 0167-9236/95/  ...  This paper demonstrates the ability of one such decision support system, GENIE, to help decision makers maximize their objectives in a crisis negotiation.  ...  G E N I E has a feature which helps the user form an approximation of an opponent's view of the world. It allows a user to fix an attitude towards risk for each opponent in the negotiation.  ...

NegoChat-A: a chat-based negotiation agent with bounded rationality

Avi Rosenfeld, Inon Zuckerman, Erel Segal-Halevi, Osnat Drein, Sarit Kraus
2015 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
To date, a variety of automated negotiation agents have been created.  ...  Instead, the agents' strategies must be modified to address partial agreements and issue-byissue interactions. Second, we present NegoChat's negotiation algorithm.  ...  Furthermore they show that, in the context of incomplete information with time discount, the more informed player ("strong" in their terminology) will push towards issue-byissue negotiation.  ...

Mediator: Towards a negotiation support system

Matthias Jarke, M.Tawfik Jelassi, Melvin F. Shakun
1987 European Journal of Operational Research  
Sharing of views constitutes exchange of information which can lead towards consensus.  ...  It supports negotiations by consensus seeking through exchange of information and, where consensus is incomplete, by compromise.  ...  Human mediator intervention to resolve such questions remains necessary even in the presence of an NSS.  ...
