MCTS-based Automated Negotiation Agent [article]

Cédric Buron, Zahia Guessoum
2019 arXiv   pre-print
This paper introduces a new negotiating agent model for automated negotiation.  ...  Evaluation is done by confronting the existing agents that are able to negotiate in such context: Random Walker, Tit-for-tat and Nice Tit-for-Tat. None of those agents succeeds in beating our agent.  ...  ANAC is an international competition used to determine the effective negotiation strategies. The negotiation domain used in ANAC 2014 [12] fits well to this objective.  ...
