Learning to Coordinate Using Commitment Sequences in Cooperative Multi-agent Systems [chapter]

Spiros Kapetanakis, Daniel Kudenko, Malcolm J. A. Strens
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We report on an investigation of the learning of coordination in cooperative multiagent systems.  ...  In previously published work (Kapetanakis and Kudenko, 2002) we have presented a reinforcement learning approach that converges to the optimal joint action even in scenarios with high miscoordination costs  ...  We then introduce a common testbed for the study of learning coordination in cooperative multi-agent systems: stochastic cooperative games.  ...

Multi-agent Deep Reinforcement Learning for Task Allocation in Dynamic Environment

Dhouha Ben Noureddine, Atef Gharbi, Samir Ben Ahmed
2017 Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Software Technologies  
We propose a new task allocation process using deep reinforcement learning that allows cooperating agents to act automatically and learn how to communicate with other neighboring agents to allocate tasks  ...  The task allocation problem in a distributed environment is one of the most challenging problems in a multiagent system.  ...  INTRODUCTION In an autonomous multi-agent system (MAS), agents can cooperate and complete hard tasks through task allocation. So they need to manage tasks unpredictably.  ...
