Emotional Multiagent Reinforcement Learning in Spatial Social Dilemmas

Chao Yu, Minjie Zhang, Fenghui Ren, Guozhen Tan
2015 IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems  
Social dilemmas have attracted extensive interest in the research of multiagent systems in order to study the emergence of cooperative behaviors among selfish agents.  ...  In particular, the spatial version of social dilemmas is considered to study the impact of local interactions on the emergence of cooperation in the whole system.  ...  Social dilemmas often arise in many situations in Multi-Agent Systems (MASs), e.g., file sharing in peer-to-peer (p2p) systems, load balancing/packet routing in wireless sensor networks and bandwidth allocation  ...
