Considering the environment as a first-class abstraction in multiagent systems opens up new horizons for research and development in multiagent systems.  ...  We give a definition stating that the environment in a multiagent system is a first-class abstraction with dual roles: (1) the environment provides the surrounding conditions for agents to exist, which  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to express our appreciation to the attendees of the workshops on Environments for Multiagent Systems in New York 2004 and Utrecht 2005, and the AgentLink III Technical Forum  ...

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.  ...  Environment, a First-Order Abstraction in Multiagent Systems Originating from research on behavior-based agent systems and multiagent systems, and stimulated by a number of recent efforts [1, 2, 3] ,  ...

Accelerating Multiagent Reinforcement Learning through Transfer Learning

Felipe Da Silva, Anna Costa
2017 PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRTIETH AAAI CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE TWENTY-EIGHTH INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE  
We intend to contribute a Transfer Learning framework focused on Multiagent RL, requiring as few domain-specific hand-coded parameters as possible.  ...  However, RL algorithms suffer from scalability issues, especially when multiple agents are acting in a shared environment.  ...  Scalability issues are further intensified in Multiagent domains, as the decision maker may need to reason over the other agents in the environment.  ...

RoboSmith: Wireless Networked Architecture for Multiagent Robotic System

Dan Floroian, Doru Ursutiu, Laura Floroian, Florin Moldoveanu
2010 International Journal of Online Engineering (iJOE)  
In this paper it is presented an architecture of a flexible mini robot in a multiagent robotic system wireless commanded.  ...  In a multiagent system the value of an individual agent is negligible since the goal of the system is essential. Thus, the agents (robots) need to be small, low cost and cooperative.  ...  It slices a robot into functional abstract layers such as locomotion, control, sensors, communication and actuation.  ...

A Generic Knowledge Model for SME Supply Chain Based on Multiagent Paradigm [chapter]

Jihene Tounsi, Julien Boissière, Georges Habchi, Van-Dat Cung
2012 Decision-Making for Supply Chain Integration  
Firstly, a supply chain is a complex system, in particular in the SME context.  ...  Secondly, the SME are not often located in the same geographical area as it could be in a more classical supply chain.  ...  In the methodology framework, the Product Vision leads to the construction of a first abstract model of the supply chain involving the environment and organizations:  The environment is characterized  ...
