Flexible and Emergent Workflows Using Adaptive Agents [chapter]

Arcady Rantrua, Marie-Pierre Gleizes, Chihab Hanachi
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We provide a meta-model linking workflow and AMAS concepts, and the specification of agent behavior and the resulting collaborations.  ...  This work proposes to view a workflow as a set of cooperative and adaptive agents interleaving its design and its execution leading to an emergent workflow.  ...  Actors can decide and specify in a cooperative way, using a negotiation process, the tasks profiles and the group allocated to a task.  ...

Agent-Based Approach for Ship Damage Control [chapter]

Eugénio Oliveira, Paulo Martins
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We here introduce a Multi-Agent System (MAS) approach for solving the crew resources assignment problem whenever a ship, under attack, suffers several damages and, thus, priorities must be assigned in  ...  In the designed system, the ship is the MAS environment and the attacker, equipment, crew and officers (these last ones seen as decision makers) are represented through agents.  ...  Finally, and most important, for the same purpose, how to coordinate joint work or reach mutual agreements together with the other agents?  ...

Intelligent Agents in Telecommunication Networks [chapter]

Leen-Kiat Soh, Costas Tsatsoulis
2000 Computational Intelligence in Telecommunications Networks  
In addition, agents can sometimes be labeled by their applications such as information agents, reactive agents, mobile agents, and hybrid agents.  ...  These components may be incompatible and require a channel or link to facilitate cooperation and coordination within the networks.  ...  The characteristics of MAS are: (1) incomplete viewpoint of the world for each agent, (2) lack of global system control, (3) decentralization of data, and (4) asynchronous section and also in this chapter  ...
