Towards Fault-Tolerant Massively Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Zahia Guessoum, Jean-Pierre Briot, Nora Faci
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we discuss the issues and propose an approach for fault-tolerance of massively multiagent systems. The starting idea is the application of replication strategies to agents.  ...  In order to construct and deploy massively multiagent systems, we must address one of the fundamental issues of distributed systems, the possibility of partial failures.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors would like to thank the members of Fault-Tolerant Multi-agent Systems project for many useful discussions and suggestions.  ...

Holonic Multiagent Systems: A Foundation for the Organisation of Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Klaus Fischer, Michael Schillo, Jörg Siekmann
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
But the organisation of a multiagent systems is difficult to specify at design time in the face of a changing environment.  ...  This paper presents basic concepts for a theory of holonic multiagent systems to both provide a methodology for the recursive modelling of agent groups, and allow for dynamic reorganisation during runtime  ...  The central concept for our endeavour, which has been iteratively tested, developed, and applied in a series of projects over the course of several years, is the holonic multiagent system.  ...

From Reactive Robotics to Situated Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Danny Weyns, Tom Holvoet
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The notion of environment exceeds specific types of agency, and as such offers opportunities for synergetic research in the interest of multiagent systems in general.  ...  Historically, the idea of situated multiagent systems-in which the environment gets a prominent role-originates from the domain of reactive robotics.  ...  The notion of environment provides a challenging area for synergetic research in multiagent systems, the environment offers opportunities for all types of agency, from ant systems to rational agent systems  ...

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

Torsten Eymann
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This article describes a framework used for the realization of a multiagent system which coordinates a supply chain using a decentralized economic approach.  ...  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  ...  This behavior can be assumed in closed multiagent systems with a single designer, but not in open marketplaces.  ...

COLLABORATIVE TUTORING: A MULTI-TUTOR APPROACH

M. Ennaji, H. Boukachour, M. Machkour, Y. Kabbadj
2020 The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences  
An Intelligent Tutorial System (ITS) is a learning computer environment. Many ITSs do not integrate human tutor since they are designed to use in autonomy by the learner.  ...  One of the reasons to increase the rate of desertion in a distance training framework compared to that of a face-to-face course is the absence of the human killer.  ...  In agreement with Wooldrigde (Wooldridge, 2009) , to take into account the dynamic aspect of learner tracks, we have chosen a multiagent System (SMA) for the organization of the data.  ...

Specifying Agent Behaviors with UML Statecharts and StatEdit [chapter]

Jan Murray
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The use of agents and multiagent systems is widespread in computer science nowadays. Thus the need for methods to specify agents in a clear and simple manner arises.  ...  One way of achieving this is by means of a graphical formalism. For using such a formalism the availability of tools, that support a developer, is of great importance.  ...  Introduction The use of agent technologies and multiagent systems has gained entrance into almost all branches of computer science. Thus the need for standards and design techniques has arisen.  ...

Abstract Requirement Analysis in Multiagent System Design

Scott J. Harmon, Scott A. DeLoach, Robby
2009 2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
We describe a framework for analyzing a design allowing decisions about what qualities are more important to be made at design-time.  ...  What drives designers to make decisions on how to architect a system? The stake-holder has certain abstract qualities in mind: efficiency, quality, reliability, and so forth.  ...  This of course needs to be balanced with generality (we would not want one policy for each possible scenario). More metrics over the multiagent system traces should be developed.  ...
