Implementing Norms in Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Javier Vázquez-Salceda, Huib Aldewereld, Frank Dignum
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
There is a wide agreement on the use of norms in order to specify the expected behaviour of agents in open MAS. However, current norm formalisms focus on the declarative nature of norms.  ...  In order to be implemented, these norms should be translated into operational representations.  ...  This means that, to be used in practice, norms should be operationally implemented.  ...

Norm emergence in multiagent systems: a viewpoint paper

Andreasa Morris-Martin, Marina De Vos, Julian Padget
2019 Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems  
Norms are utilised in agent societies to encourage acceptable behaviour by the participating agents. They can be established or revised from the top-down (authority) or from the bottom-up (populace).  ...  In consequence, we seek to analyse and categorize the approaches proposed in the literature for facilitating norm emergence. This paper makes three contributions to the study of norm emergence.  ...  [68] Acknowledgements We wish to thank the editors and reviewers whose valuable comments and additional insights resulted in a much improved paper.  ...

Normative Multiagent Systems and Trust Dynamics [chapter]

Guido Boella, Leendert van der Torre
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The theory can be used in theories or applications of trust to understand when it is necessary to revise it.  ...  In particular, we formalize an agent who attributes mental attitudes such as goals and desires to the normative system which creates and enforces its obligations.  ...  Our motivation for defining normative multiagent systems is to define a theory of rational decision making in combinations of multiagent systems and normative systems, for which we use recursive modelling  ...

An Approach to Operationalize Regulative Norms in Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Carolina Howard, Jean-Pierre Briot, Carlos Jose Pereira de Luce
2011 Multi-Agent Systems - Modeling, Interactions, Simulations and Case Studies  
Related workDespite all efforts made to move theory and practice of MAS from closed to open agent societies, current solutions do not yet explicitly support openness and its consequences.  ...  A multiagent system(s) (hereinafter referenced as MAS 1 ) is/are an example of an open system in which the actions of heterogeneous, self-interested agents may deviate from the expected behavior in a context  ...  When the message arrives at the ManufacturerPolice (the police agent created to enforce the system norms in the manufacturer agent), the ManufacturerPolice blocks the sending of the message to the MissourianManufacturer  ...

Norm creation, spreading and emergence: A survey of simulation models of norms in multi-agent systems

Bastin Tony Roy Savarimuthu, Stephen Cranefield
2011 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
In multi-agent systems, software agents are modelled as possessing characteristics and behaviour borrowed from human societies.  ...  Norms in human societies are expectations of behaviours of the individuals. In human societies, there are several types of norms such as moral norms, social norms and legal norms (laws).  ...  We would also like to thank Peter Whigham, Christian Müller-Schloer and Michael Winikoff for their comments. 50 B.T.R.

Collective Learning for the Emergence of Social Norms in Networked Multiagent Systems

Chao Yu, Minjie Zhang, Fenghui Ren
2014 IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics  
This paper studies the emergence of social norms via learning from repeated local interactions in networked multiagent systems.  ...  Experimental results reveal some significant insights into the manipulation and control of norm emergence in networked multiagent systems achieved through local collective behaviors.  ...  Madeleine Cincotta in proof reading is also gratefully acknowledged.  ...

Modeling Control Mechanisms with Normative Multiagent Systems: The Case of the Renewables Obligation [chapter]

Guido Boella, Joris Hulstijn, Yao-Hua Tan, Leendert van der Torre
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We apply a conceptual model based on normative multiagent systems (NMAS). We propose to model both the participants and the normative system as autonomous agents, having beliefs and goals.  ...  As a case study, we discuss the Renewables Obligation (RO), a control mechanism that was introduced in the United Kingdom to stimulate the production of renewable energy.  ...  Thanks to Vera Kartseva for providing details of the RO case.  ...

Resolving conflict and inconsistency in norm-regulated virtual organizations

Wamberto Vasconcelos, Martin J. Kollingbaum, Timothy J. Norman
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
We focus on virtual organizations realised as multi-agent systems, in which human and software agents interact to achieve individual and global goals.  ...  Due to the changing nature of norms or due to norms stemming from different virtual organizations, there will be situations when an action is simultaneously permitted and prohibited, that is, a conflict  ...  Acknowledgements: This research is continuing through participation in the International Technology Alliance sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the U.K. Ministry of Defence.  ...

Normative Systems in Computer Science - Ten Guidelines for Normative Multiagent Systems

Guido Boella, Gabriella Pigozzi, Leendert van der Torre, Pablo Noriega, Harko Verhagen
From the so-called 'normchange' definition of the first workshop on nor- mative multiagent systems in 2005 we derive the guidelines to motivate which definition of normative multiagent system is used,  ...  distinguish norms from obligations, prohibitions and permissions, use the deontic paradoxes only to illustrate the normative multiagent system, and consider regulative norms in rela- tion to other kinds  ...  We have to build more flexible normative multiagent systems, and test them in practice, before we know where they can be used best.  ...

They are a prime example of the use of sociological theories in multiagent systems, and therefore of the relation between agent theory-both multi-agent systems and autonomous agents-and the social sciences-sociology  ...  Normative systems are systems in the behavior of which norms play a role and which need normative concepts in order to be described or specified.  ...  The participants were divided in groups corresponding to the areas identified as relevant in the field of Normative Multiagent Systems.  ...
