Ontology-Services to Facilitate Agents' Interoperability [chapter]

Andreia Malucelli, Eugénio da Costa Oliveira
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontology has an important role in Multi-Agent Systems communication once it provides a vocabulary to be used in the communication between agents.  ...  In order to provide help in the conversation among different agents, we are proposing what we call ontology-services to facilitate agents' interoperability.  ...  The market agent is the entity that facilitates the meeting of agents and supports the negotiation process.  ...

An Ontology Solution for Language Interoperability between Agents

Maricela Bravo, Jose Velazquez, Azucena Montes
2006 Electronics, Robotics and Automotive Mechanics Conference (CERMA'06)  
Electronic negotiation is a process in which two or more software agents interact and take decisions for mutual gain.  ...  The results of the tests show that the proposed solution improves communication between negotiation agents. Keywords Ontology, multi-agent systems, electronic negotiation.  ...  To solve this problem we have developed a shared ontology to facilitate communication of negotiation agents.  ...

Dynamic Process Integration Framework: Toward Efficient Information Processing in Complex Distributed Systems [chapter]

Gregor Pavlin, Michiel Kamermans, Mihnea Scafeş
2009 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
The Dynamic Process Integration Framework (DPIF) is a service oriented approach which supports efficient creation of distributed systems for collaborative reasoning.  ...  The resulting systems support processing based on rich domain knowledge while, at the same time, the collaboration between heterogeneous services requires minimal ontological commitments.  ...  The outcome of a successful negotiation between two agents is a contract, which results in the creation of a communication channel supporting peer-to-peer communication between the agents.  ...
