Lawrence Chung, Kendra Cooper
2002 INCOSE International Symposium  
In requirements engineering, the focus has been on modeling the software engineering process and products for systems that are being built from scratch.  ...  In this paper, we present a goal and agent oriented requirements engineering process model that explicitly addresses the use of COTS components.  ...  The CARE approach is agent oriented. The agents are the stakeholders for the system under development.  ...

Multi-agent team cooperation: A game theory approach

E. Semsar-Kazerooni, K. Khorasani
2009 Automatica  
The main goal of this work is to design a team of agents that can accomplish consensus over a common value for the agents' output using cooperative game theory approach.  ...  The latter solution results in a lower cost for each agent at the expense of requiring full information set.  ...  from other agents in its neighboring set.  ...

A game theory approach to multi-agent team cooperation

E. Semsar-Kazerooni, K. Khorasani
2009 2009 American Control Conference  
The main goal of this work is to design a team of agents that can accomplish consensus over a common value for the agents' output in a cooperative manner.  ...  The latter solution results in a lower cost for each agent at the expense of requiring full information set.  ...  Hence, in a cooperative strategy depending on which agent requires more resource the resulting minima can be different.  ...

Cooperative Edge Caching: A Multi-Agent Deep Learning Based Approach

Yuming Zhang, Bohao Feng, Wei Quan, Aleteng Tian, Keshav Sood, Youfang Lin, Hongke Zhang
2020 IEEE Access  
Thus, in this paper, we propose a deep reinforcement learning-based cooperative edge caching approach, which allows the distributed edge servers to learn to cooperate with each other.  ...  As a result, how to perform an efficient cooperative caching becomes a critical issue.  ...  On this basis, a multi-agent actor-critic cooperative edge caching algorithm was developed to conduct the proposed approach.  ...

Multi-agent Model to Control Production System: A Reactive and Emergent Approach by Cooperation and Competition between Agents [chapter]

Mahmoud Tchikou, Eric Gouardères
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
That's why, we propose an approach, which has reactive, distributive, and emergent properties to control the system of production, based on multi-agent system principles.  ...  In view of strong competitive markets, current companies tend to new methods of production, from a logic of «planning» type of production to a logical of «Just in time » type.  ...  From this definition, a distributed, reactive, and eme rgent model to control the production system will be proposed. This model based on multi agent approach.  ...

Learning and Cooperating Multi-agent Scheduling Repair Using a Provenance-Centred Approach

Terence Tan, Tele Tan, Geoff West, Siow Yong Low
2012 2012 5th International Conference on Human System Interactions  
From repeated negotiations, agents learn to develop a model of other agent's preferences.  ...  A Multi-Agent System (MAS) is proposed in which users are represented as autonomous agents negotiating with one another to repair a timetable.  ...  The cooperation level can be positive, zero or negative. A positive cooperation level means that the agent requires an increase in utility for a swap to occur.  ...

A MULTI-AGENT APPROACH TO ENVIRONMENT EXPLORATION

DARIO MAIO, STEFANO RIZZI

In our approach the environment is described, from a symbolic point of view, by means of a graph; clustering techniques allow for further levels of abstraction to be de ned, leading to a multi-layered  ...  Inter-agent communication allows for the agents to share their knowledge and to record acquaintances of the other agents. A communication protocol for organizing teams of agents is provided.  ...  Matteo Golfarelli signi cantly contributed to the implementation of the exploration algorithm and to the testing of its performance. Their work is gratefully acknowledged.  ...

Nicolas Carlesi, Fabien Michel, Bruno Jouvencel, Jacques Ferber
2011 2011 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
To this end, an organizational model is used to ease and regulate interactions between heterogeneous AUVs and combined with a behavioral reactive approach for limiting communication.  ...  So, it is difficult to reuse these approaches when switching to another mission context.  ...  Actions and interactions are entirely determined from the "internal state" of the robot. Such approaches may be called "agent centered multi-agent systems" (ACMAS) [10] .  ...
