Hailun Qi, Jiye Mao
2016 International Conference on Information Systems  
These findings contribute to both the crowdsourcing literature and cognitive frame theory, with practical implications for managing crowdsourcing platforms.  ...  Despite the challenges for matchmaking between seekers and vendors of creative design, known as "the most difficult business in the world" to Z Inc. staff, the platform has made remarkable progress.  ...  In the first phase, we identified the most interesting themes from raw data.

Matchmaking Means and Marriage Quality: The Role of Information in Marriage Markets

Ginger Zhe Jin, Lixin Colin Xu
2004 Social Science Research Network  
We compare three matchmaking means -self match, parental involvement, and friend introduction -and associate them with the degree of marriage harmony and joint couple income after marriage.  ...  for parent-involved marriages, and reduced earning for friends-introduced marriages.  ...  Agency costs arise if there is any information difference or misaligned interests between the principal and the agent. We now discuss each in more details.  ...

Agent Societies: Towards Frameworks-Based Design [chapter]

Virginia Dignum, Hans Weigand, Lai Xu
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a global methodology for the design of agent societies that takes the organisational perspective as starting point and specifies the development steps for the design and development of an agent-based  ...  Existing methodologies can be used for the development and modelling of each step.  ...  Higher level agents arbitrate unresolvable disputes between peer agents.  ...

Markets without Makers - A Framework for Decentralized Economic Coordination in Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Torsten Eymann
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Such environments will naturally form unregulated market-coordinated multi-agent systems with selfish agents negotiating for utility maximization, and they need concepts for decentralized economic coordination  ...  -a mechanism for distributed resource allocation that works without a market maker, with maximum privacy, security and coherent coordination as result.  ...  These are either catalogs, arbitrators, matchmakers, or auctioneers, and they gain money by either access fees or transaction fees. But are they necessary?  ...

They belong to the category of the matchmaker intermediaries. These middlemen are not well known. Their role is to help buyers and sellers of bulk wine to meet and transact.  ...  Assuming that wine merchants appeal to brokers because they reduce transaction costs, we analyze how a broker intervention can reduce search costs, negotiation costs, and monitoring and enforcement costs  ...  She only perform ex post functions by monitoring parties and arbitrating potential conflicts whereas brokers take part to ex ante exchange stages to.  ...

Towards a reference model for agent-based systems

Pragnesh Jay Modi, Spiros Mancoridis, William M. Mongan, William Regli, Israel Mayk
2006 Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '06  
We discuss what a reference model is, why one is needed for agent-based systems, and our proposed methodology for creating such a reference model.  ...  In this paper, we argue that a reference model for agent-based systems can fill this need.  ...  We also thank Tedd Gimber, Bernard Goren, Michael Huhns, James Odell, Randy Reitmeyer and Todd Urness for useful discussions.  ...

Language and Conflict Resolution: The Limits of English

Raymond Cohen
2001 International Studies Review  
"Conflict" can overlap with "dispute" and is used loosely of a general clash of interests or views.  ...  For this service the agent receives a fee. Thus mediation is thought of as a way of doing business and not of resolving conflict.  ...

Srinath N.K.2and K.N Subramanya3 Samara Mubeen1
2015 Zenodo  
Match making is becoming important in this rapidly changing world for identifying the required supplier and buyer pair.  ...  In this paper we are building a mathematical model using extensive games with perfect information, Nash equilibrium is found in order to find the exact match.  ...  In the match the supplier and buyer matching is done by considering least conflicting interest, arbitration seeks and cost. Two sided in which agents and e-business partner are matched.  ...

Agent-Based Composite Services in DAML-S: the Behavior-Oriented Design of an Intelligent Semantic Web [chapter]

Joanna J. Bryson, David Martin, Sheila A. McIlraith, Lynn Andrea Stein
2003 Web Intelligence  
A semantic Web would allow artificial agents to do the work of searching for and organizing services required by humans or organizations.  ...  The services encoded in DAML-S can then be viewed as specifications either for extensions of the user agents attempting to exploit the services, or as independent, collaborative agents that can be 'awakened  ...  And a very special thanks to Terry Payne of the CMU Robotics Institute for generously allowing us to reproduce his artwork in Figure 1 .  ...

Intelligent Resource Allocation–Solutions and Pathways in a Workforce Planning Problem [chapter]

Botond Virginas, Marian Ursu, Edward Tsang, Gilbert Owusu, Chris Voudouris
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Agent technologies seem to be well suited to this domain by providing a distributed environment, are network centric, semi-autonomous and collaborative and can communicate with each other to achieve better  ...  the fact that it is a natural and versatile formulation that combines an agent-based model with various artificial intelligence and operations research techniques such as rule-based expressions of allocation  ...  For example different entities could have potentially conflicting interests or individual entities could have many constraints to consider, and these constraints could change dynamically.  ...
