MARS: a programmable coordination architecture for mobile agents

G. Cabri, L. Leonardi, F. Zambonelli
2000 IEEE Internet Computing  
Mobile agents offer much promise, but agent mobility and Internet openness make coordination more difficult.  ...  Mobile Agent Reactive Spaces, a Linda-like coordination architecture with programming features, can handle a heterogeneous network while still allowing simple and flexible application design.  ...  PROGRAMMABLE TUPLE SPACES Despite allowing spatial and temporal uncoupling, the Linda-like coordination model lacks flexibility and interaction control.  ...

2019 E3S Web of Conferences  
The solution of the problem on the basis of the agent approach is developed by a multitude of interrelated agents.  ...  The current technological infrastructure in the electricity, heat, cold, and gas supply, as a rule, is formed and controlled separately by local systems and tasks.  ...  Control coordinator agent In emergency or severe situations, after receiving relevant information from information agents, it produces control actions.  ...

Goal-Directed Metacontrol for Integrated Procedure Learning [chapter]

Jihie Kim, Karen Myers, Melinda Gervasio, Yolanda Gil
2011 Metareasoning  
For a learning system of such complexity, activities of participating agents must be coordinated to ensure that their collective activities produce the desired procedural knowledge.  ...  Learning occurs at the reasoning level, while the metalevel supports control of learning through two essential mechanisms: metalevel process management (realized by Maven) and metalevel management of learned  ...  Summary and Lessons Learned We introduced a goal-oriented approach for metalevel coordination of learning agents designed to acquire complex procedural knowledge.  ...

OpenWebServer: an adaptive Web server using software patterns

J. Suzuki, Y. Yamamoto
1999 IEEE Communications Magazine  
It controls and coordinates interactions among a set of metaobjects. It acts as an intermediary among the metaobjects in the metalevel.  ...  Multiple metalevels can exist within the system, although it usually has a single metalevel. It references every metaobject and coordinates the interaction between them to meet a given requirement.  ...

Enforcing agent communication laws by means of a reflective framework

Antonella Di Stefano, Corrado Santoro, Giuseppe Pappalardo, Emiliano Tramontana
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '04  
Agent Coordination Contexts (ACCs) have been proposed as virtual environments where agents live and interact.  ...  Context modeling, while representing a communication aspect relevant for all the agents of an application, is a crosscutting concern with respect to the design of the activities of each agent.  ...  , and a metalevel, controlling all the communications between agents.  ...

Page 4952 of Psychological Abstracts Vol. 79, Issue 11 [page]

1992 Psychological Abstracts  
The development of increasingly sophisticated cooperative control mechanisms for coordinating agents is traced.  ...  The mechanisms include integrating data- and goal-directed control, using static metalevel information specified by an organizational structure, and using dynamic metalevel information developed in partial  ... 

Metareasoning Structures, Problems, and Modes for Multiagent Systems: A Survey

Samuel T. Langlois, Oghenetekevwe Akoroda, Estefany Carrillo, Jeffrey W. Herrmann, Shapour Azarm, Huan Xu, Michael Otte
2020 IEEE Access  
In an autonomous agent, metareasoning occurs in a metalevel that monitors and controls the reasoning algorithms in the agent's object level, which contains the reasoning algorithms that understand the  ...  DESIGNING COORDINATION The ability of agents to coordinate generally depends upon their ability to communicate, and often agents try to coordinate with as many agents as possible.  ...

Multiagent Meta-level Control for a Network of Weather Radars

Shanjun Cheng, Anita Raja, Victor Lesser
2010 2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
We develop a reinforcement learning based mechanism for multiagent meta-level control that facilitates the metalevel control component of each agent to learn policies in a decentralized fashion that (a  ...  ) it can efficiently support agent interactions with other agents and (b) reorganize the underlying network when needed.  ...  An Example NetRads Topology In the next section we describe the details of Phase 2: MMLC Module which implements the coordination of metalevel control parameters across agents.  ...

The PAGIS Grid Application Environment [chapter]

Darren Webb, Andrew L. Wendelborn
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The reflective interface enables the introduction of new behaviour to the application, such as its execution in a Grid environment and its dynamic control.  ...  An agent may use this information as the basis for an adaptation event, and trigger a computation to migrate.  ...

Distributed Metamanagement for Self-Protection and Self-Explanation [chapter]

Catriona M. Kennedy
2011 Metareasoning  
A non-hierarchical system in which distributed metalevels mutually monitor and repair each other can act collectively as a self-protective system.  ...  Furthermore, the global coordination needed to provide coherent actions and explanations is possible in a decentralised architecture, provided that the meta-level which is managing the coordination is  ...  Additionally, we are primarily interested in a distributed control system for a single agent.  ...

Meta-level control of multiagent systems [chapter]

1994 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Sophisticated agents operating in open environments must make complex real-time control decisions on scheduling and coordination of domain actions.  ...  The question of how to sequence domain and control actions without consuming too many resources in the process, is the meta-level control problem for a resource-bounded rational agent.  ...  In addition to the metalevel control component, there are various options for invoking the scheduling and coordination components. These options differ in their resource usage and performance.  ...

Cooperative multiagent systems: a personal view of the state of the art

V.R. Lesser
1999 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
Scientific research and practice in multiagent systems focuses on constructing computational frameworks, principles, and models for how both small and large societies of intelligent, semiautonomous agents  ...  It is my conjecture that in the future agents will be required to perform some form of metalevel reasoning so as to balance the level of optimality of their control decisions with the level of resources  ...  However, if agents have very good models of the behavior of other agents, it may not be necessary to coordinate through the exchange of metalevel information but, rather, just the observation by one agent  ...
