From Algorithms to (Sub-)Symbolic Inferences in Multi-Agent Systems

Boldur E. Bărbat, Sorin C. Negulescu
2006 International Journal of Computers Communications & Control  
Extending metaphorically the Moisilean idea of "nuanced-reasoning logic" and adapting it to the e-world age of Information Technology (IT), the paper aims at showing that new logics, already useful in  ...  modern software engineering, become necessary mainly for Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), despite obvious adversities.  ...  That From Algorithms to (Sub-)Symbolic Inferences in Multi-Agent Systems 9 means: parallelism, temporal dimension, non-determinism, reactivity.  ...

2009 International Journal of Computers Communications & Control  
merge conventional agent design with approaches employed in advanced distributed systems (where parallelism is intrinsic to the problem, not just a mean to speed up).  ...  Among the conclusions: a) Nondeterministic software is unavoidable; its development entails not just new design principles but new computing paradigms. b) Agent-oriented systems, to be effectual, should  ...  This work was partially supported by the Ministry of Education and Research through contract No. 12 -092/2007.  ...

Agents and MAS in STaMs [chapter]

Jim Doran
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose an abstract mathematical model of space and time within which to study agents, multi-agent systems and their environments.  ...  The model is unusual in three ways: an attempt is made to reduce the structure and behaviour of agents and their environment to the properties of the "matter" of which they are composed, a "block time"  ...  We have taken the investigation forward in a little detail, shown that it is possible to study agents and multi-agent systems in this way, and shown that STaM agents correspond to Boolean and multi-state  ...

DOMINO: Trivalent Logic Semantics in Bivalent Syntax Clothes

Boldur E. Bărbat
2007 International Journal of Computers Communications & Control  
Its description here is self-contained but, since a validation is underway within a much broader undertaking involving agent-oriented software, to impair redundancy, several aspects explained in very recent  ...  As for most novel approaches, expectations are high, involving a less algorithmic, less probabilistic, less difficult to understand method to treat undecidability in dynamic and uncertain environments,  ...  Except trivial applications, the system exposed to decision-making is "man-machine system [...], highly complex (multi-distributed -mainly in space, but also in time and organization), under real-time  ...

Extending BDI Multi-Agent Systems with Situation Management

J. Buford, G. Jakobson, L. Lewis
2006 2006 9th International Conference on Information Fusion  
These alternatives range from complete SM functionality in each agent to having shared SM functionality among multiple agents.  ...  This has several advantages for multi-agent systems using BDI agents.  ...  During this process an agent considers temporal, causal and other relations between the events to recognize a high-level operational situation which describes the state of the world at a specific time.  ...

Intelligent agent based framework to augment warehouse management systems for dynamic demand environments

Tania Binos, Vince Bruno, Arthur Adamopoulos
2021 Australasian Journal of Information Systems  
This paper presents the design and development stage of a design science methodology of an intelligent agent framework for basic warehouse management systems.  ...  The golden rule of material handling is smooth product flow, but there are day-to-day operational issues that occur in the warehouse that can impact this and order fulfilment, resulting in disruptions.  ...  Agents have goals and goals can persist. Agents continue to execute plans until the goal is fulfilled so an exception does not need to be handled manually all the time.  ...

The UMASS intelligent home project

Victor Lesser, Michael Atighetchi, Brett Benyo, Bryan Horling, Anita Raja, Régis Vincent, Thomas Wagner, Ping Xuan, Shelley XQ. Zhang
1999 Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents - AGENTS '99  
In the UMASS Intelligent Home project we have designed and implemented a set of distributed autonomous home control agents and deployed them in a simulated home environment.  ...  The functional and spatial distribution of tasks naturally lends itself to a multi-agent model and the existence of shared resources creates interactions over which the agents must coordinate.  ...  Introduction The intelligent home project (IHome) at the UMASS multi-agent systems lab is an exploration in the application of multi-agent systems technology to the problem of managing an intelligent environment  ...

2007 Computational intelligence  
We present a roadmap of research into the use of computational logic in agent-based systems and survey much of the recent work in these areas.  ...  Hence there has been a strong research effort directed at using formal logic as the basis for agent descriptions and agent implementation.  ...  Schild tackles this by collapsing the two dimensions of time and modalities onto a one dimensional structure.  ...

Investigating Interactions between Agent Conversations and Agent Control Components [chapter]

Thomas Wagner, Brett Benyo, Victor Lesser, Ping Xuan
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Introduction Based on a long history of work in agents and agent control components for building distributed AI and multi-agent systems, we are attempting to frame and address a set of intellectual questions  ...  As discussed in Section 5, intra-level and inter-level interaction in conjunction with interactions between conversations and agent control components pushes harder on the issue of interaction.  ...  FSMs may throw and catch exceptions. This allows FSMs to handle timeout conditions and other events that drastically change the execution flow through the FSM, and to do so in a succinct fashion.  ...
