Modeling Multi Agent Communication Activities with Petri Nets

Sama Khosravifar
2013 International Journal of Information and Education Technology  
Our approach provides theoretical framework for studying communication dialogues at a conceptual and logical level. Index Terms-Multi-agent systems, agent interaction, petri nets.  ...  We present a Petri Net based generic framework for modeling different types of communication.  ...  Moreover, a meta-model describing the concepts of PN has been outlined. The framework is characterized by the fact that agents respect Commitment and Argument Network (CAN).  ...

2003 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
We then provide a conceptual framework through which we outline the core elements and features required by agents engaged in argumentation-based negotiation, as well as the environment that hosts these  ...  For each of these elements, we survey and evaluate existing proposed techniques in the literature and highlight the major challenges that need to be addressed if argument-based negotiation research is  ...  Several multi-party negotiation systems with artificial mediators have been built to aid human negotiation.  ...

Posit spaces

Peter McBurney, Simon Parsons
2003 Proceedings of the second international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '03  
Our work integrates three strands of prior research: the theory of Tuple Spaces in distributed computation; formal dialogue games from argumentation theory; and the study of commitments in multi-agent  ...  We then define a computational model for this theory, called Posit Spaces, along with the syntax and semantics for an agent interaction protocol, the Posit Spaces Protocol or PSP.  ...  commitment stores in formal dialogue games; and Singh's treatment of commitments in multi-agent systems.  ...

Strategic Argumentation in Multi-Agent Systems

Matthias Thimm
2014 Künstliche Intelligenz  
Argumentation-based negotiation describes the process of decision-making in multi-agent systems through the exchange of arguments.  ...  If agents only have partial knowledge about the subject of a dialogue strategic argumentation can be used to exploit weaknesses in the argumentation of other agents and thus to persuade other agents of  ...  Acknowledgements I thank Tjitze Rienstra, Nir Oren, Tony Hunter, Gabriele Kern-Isberner, and Alejandro García for valuable discussions on the topic of computational models of argumentation in general and  ...

Interleaving Collaborative Planning and Execution Along with Deliberation in Logistics and Supply Chain [chapter]

Naeem Khalid Janjua, Omar Khadeer Hussain, Elizabeth Chang
2015 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Deliberation module in the proposed framework provides a platform to human planners where they can start an argumentative dialogue to resolve the conflicts by establishing preferences between conflicting  ...  In this paper, we envisage a collaborative planning and execution framework for logistics and supply chain operations. The framework supports human planners for a collaborative plan construction.  ...  The deliberation dialogue is a meta-argumentation system consists of union of arguments that are constructed by the proponent and the opponents i.e. A = A pro ∪ A opps .  ...

Dialogue Relation Extraction with Document-level Heterogeneous Graph Attention Networks [article]

Hui Chen, Pengfei Hong, Wei Han, Navonil Majumder, Soujanya Poria
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Dialogue relation extraction (DRE) aims to detect the relation between two entities mentioned in a multi-party dialogue.  ...  This graph is fed to a graph attention network for context propagation among relevant nodes, which effectively captures the dialogue context.  ...  However, for dialogue relation extraction, interlocutors exist in every utterance of the dialogue, and they are often considered as an argument.  ...

A computational model of argumentation schemes for multi-agent systems

Alison R. Panisson, Peter McBurney, Rafael H. Bordini
2021 Argument & Computation  
This paper formally defines such a framework and experimentally evaluates its implementation for both argumentation-based reasoning and dialogues.  ...  When developing multi-agent applications in which argumentation will be used to improve agent communication and reasoning, argumentation schemes (reasoning patterns for argumentation) are useful in addressing  ...  During one of Alison's presentations during that conference, Professor Walton asked a question, concluding his speech with a compliment, saying that our approach to knowledge representation for argumentation  ...

Rhetorical Coding of Health Promotion Dialogues [chapter]

Floriana Grasso
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper proposes a three-layered model of dialogue coding, based on a rhetorical argumentation model, and a behavioural model of change.  ...  The model was applied to the analysis of a corpus of 40 e-mail dialogue exchanges on healthy nutrition advice. Examples of analysis are given.  ...  On the basis of this theory, we have developed a framework for rhetorical argumentation [13] , which we have applied to the generation of health promotion dialogues [3] .  ...

Command Dialogues [chapter]

Katie Atkinson, Rod Girle, Peter McBurney, Simon Parsons
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a representation of imperatives in computational systems, and a multi-agent dialogue protocol to argue over these.  ...  Our representation treats a command as a presumptive argument for an action to be executed by a designated agent, together with a set of associated critical questions whose answers may defeat the presumption  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the referees for their comments.  ...

Multi-party dialogues are common in enterprise social media on technical as well as non-technical topics. The outcome of a conversation may be positive or negative.  ...  A special decision tree, with decision metrics that take into account temporal relationships between dialogue events, is used for predicting the cause of the outcome sentiment.  ...  Figure 2 : 2 Pipeline for explaining outcomes of multi-party dialogues.  ...

Argumentation–Based Negotiation? Negotiation–Based Argumentation! [chapter]

Jürgen Landes, Ricardo Buettner
2012 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
We design a protocol for two autonomous negotiating agents to incorporate Dung-style argumentation into an ongoing bargaining dialogue.  ...  In our framework the acceptance of an argument or attack uttered by self-interested agents is conditional on the acceptance by the negotiating partner.  ...  So although an agent may agree to accept certain argumentation frameworks as a bases for further negotiations there is no outside party that forces the agent to actually do so.  ...

Argumentation based negotiation in multiagent system

Ashraf B. El-Sisi, Hamdy M. Mousa
2012 2012 Seventh International Conference on Computer Engineering & Systems (ICCES)  
This property of argumentation protocols can lead to beneficial agreements when used for complex multi agent negotiation.  ...  Negotiation is a process of reaching an agreement on the terms of a transaction such as price, quantity, for two or more parties in multi-agent systems such as E-Commerce.  ...  In ABN framework agents need richer communication and domain languages to be able to exchange meta-level information.  ...
