An Ontology Solution for Language Interoperability between Agents

Maricela Bravo, Jose Velazquez, Azucena Montes
2006 Electronics, Robotics and Automotive Mechanics Conference (CERMA'06)  
Our research is based in the development of a shared ontology for publishing definitions of negotiation primitives, and a translator module, which is executed only when a misunderstanding occurs.  ...  Traditional negotiation systems have been implemented using agent architectures, where agents communicate exchanging negotiation primitives generated by each system, based on particular language definitions  ...  The ontology represents the shared vocabulary that the translator uses during execution of negotiation processes.  ...

Ontologies for supporting negotiation in e-commerce

Valentina Tamma, Steve Phelps, Ian Dickinson, Michael Wooldridge
2005 Engineering applications of artificial intelligence  
In order to support a wide variety of negotiation mechanisms, protocols are not hard-coded in the agents participating to negotiations, but are expressed in terms of a shared ontology, thus making this  ...  In this approach, agents can negotiate in any type of marketplace regardless of the negotiation mechanism in use.  ...  Building on the assumptions made and on the role the ontology has to serve, we can identify the following modelling requirements, which guided us in the design of the shared ontology for negotiation: (  ...

Ontology-Services to Facilitate Agents' Interoperability [chapter]

Andreia Malucelli, Eugénio da Costa Oliveira
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontology has an important role in Multi-Agent Systems communication once it provides a vocabulary to be used in the communication between agents.  ...  It is hard to find out two agents using precisely the same vocabulary. They usually have a heterogeneous private vocabulary defined in their own private ontology.  ...  The use of a common ontology guarantees the consistency (an expression has the same meaning for all the agents) and the compatibility (a concept is designed, for the same expression, for any agent) of  ...

Negotiating the Semantics of Agent Communication Languages

Chris Reed, Timothy J. Norman, Nicholas R. Jennings
2002 Computational intelligence  
This article presents a formal framework and outlines a method that autonomous agents can use to negotiate the semantics of their communication language at run-time.  ...  This classification can then be used by the agents to structure their negotiation (or semantic fixing) process so that they converge to the mutually agreeable semantics that are necessary for coherent  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their useful and insightful comments.  ...

Trends in Agent Communication Language

B. Chaib-draa, F. Dignum
2002 Computational intelligence  
Agent programs are designed to autonomously collaborate with each other in order to satisfy both their internal goals and the shared external demands generated by virtue of their participation in agent  ...  This type of collaboration depends on a sophisticated system of inter-agent communication.  ...  Consequently, agents can only fully communicate if they already share a common ontology, or if a set of preexisting translation rules is provided.  ...

Agents in computer-assisted collaborative design [chapter]

Divine T. Ndumu, Joseph M. H. Tah
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We argue that the agent-based approach provides a useful metaphor for reasoning about design systems, as well as contributing new tools and techniques for facilitating the collaborative design process.  ...  For researchers working at the boundary between artificial intelligence and engineering design, the notion of "agents" working in a collaborative manner to assist the design effort is not new.  ...  The advice of Gilbert Owusu of LMU is also gratefully acknowledged. Thanks to Chimay Anumba for encouraging us to write this article.  ...

A Framework for Inter-society Communication in Agents [chapter]

R. Abbasi, F. Mitchell, S. Greenwood
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Normally a society of agents is developed to cope with and solve a particular set of problems or to achieve some particular goals and objectives.  ...  What is needed is a CORBA like solution for agent societies.  ...  This reduction in fields in a message and the limited number of primitive performatives will simplify the problem and enable the design of a mechanism for translation between different ACL's.  ...

The role of culture in collaborative ontology design

Linda Anticoli, Elio Toppano
2011 Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Intelligent Semantic Web-Services and Applications - ISWSA '11  
We argue that a "culture aware" attitude may be of great importance for the development of systems (e.g. web services) that, more or less implicitly, adopt ontologies and for supporting the processes of  ...  Hypotheses are formulated concerning the influence of cultural differences in the definition of ontology, its conceptual organisation and the design process.  ...  The (re)use of an ontology -either when it is used as a metamodel for an entire application (or for a part of it) or when it is used to annotate and support reasoning about specific web resources -informs  ...

Towards an Ontological Foundation for Services Science: The Legal Perspective [chapter]

Roberta Ferrario, Nicola Guarino, Meritxell Fernández-Barrera
2010 Approaches to Legal Ontologies  
To make some progress towards a shared conceptualization, we present in this paper a general service model based on the DOLCE foundational ontology.  ...  Each service belongs to a larger service system process which obeys legal and pricing constraints. We illustrate the model's usefulness and relevance by the means of a continuous example.  ...  Given such a situation, interoperability across services becomes a myth, since as service designers do not share a common semantic background, they may use the same terms to express different concepts  ...

Using the REA Ontology to Create Interoperability between E-Collaboration Modeling Standards [chapter]

Frederik Gailly, Geert Poels
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An alternative for imposing a modeling standard is the use of a shared ontology onto which the local ontologies of the different actors are mapped.  ...  In particular, we show how the Resource-Event-Agent (REA) enterprise ontology [9] [10] [11] can be used as a shared ontology for the UMM and ISO/IEC 15944 standards such that business process models articulated  ...  specific primitives for part-whole relations and as a result the ODM lacks this type of mapping.  ...
