Organisational adaptation of multi-agent systems in a peer-to-peer scenario

Jordi Campos, Marc Esteva, Maite López-Sánchez, Javier Morales, Maria Salamó
2010 Computing  
Organisations in Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) have proven to be successful in regulating agent societies.  ...  Nevertheless, changes in agents' behaviour or in the dynamics of the environment may lead to a poor fullment of the system's purposes, and so the entire organisation needs to be adapted.  ...  Furthermore, if we assume a multi-agent system to be composed of a set of agents within an environment that participate in an organisation (see equation 2), then we can express this architectural stratication  ...

Multi-agent system adaptation in a peer-to-peer scenario

Jordi Campos Miralles, Maite López-Sánchez, Marc Esteva
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 ACM symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '09  
A Peer-to-Peer scenario helps us to illustrate our approach. The resulting model changes participant organisation depending on environment and agent changes.  ...  In this paper, we propose a MAS architecture (2-Lama) to adapt social conventions in dynamic systems.  ...  Even more, we plan to experiment with a norm at meta-layer level to bound its weight over the rest of the system (i.e. limit the number of peers and assistant can tell that another peer has data A Multi-Agent  ...

A Case-Based Reasoning Approach for Norm Adaptation [chapter]

Jordi Campos, Maite López-Sánchez, Marc Esteva
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science

Heuristic Resource Search in a Self-Organised Distributed Multi Agent System [chapter]

Muntasir Al-Asfoor, Brendan Neville, Maria Fasli
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The work presented in this paper has addressed the issue of resource sharing in dynamic heterogeneous Multi Agent Systems as a search problem.  ...  Our implementation of search algorithms differs from traditional algorithms by using semantically guided technique for resource search as well as a dynamically re-organisable network of agents.  ...  When a new agent joins the system it will be given a random peer from the set of peers which are already active in the system and then the agent will start to forward and receive messages.The receiver  ...

Decentralized approaches for self-adaptation in agent organizations

Ramachandra Kota, Nicholas Gibbins, Nicholas R. Jennings
2012 ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems  
Self-organising multi-agent systems provide a suitable paradigm for developing autonomic computing systems that manage themselves.  ...  We empirically show that, in a wide range of closed, open, static and dynamic scenarios, the performance of organisations using our method is close (70 − 90%) to that of an idealised centralised allocation  ...  Meta-reasoning, in general, has been explored in a multi-agent systems context [Alexander et al. 2007; Hogg and Jennings 2001 ], but has not previously been applied to self-organisation scenarios.  ...

Entwined Influences of Users' Behaviour and QoS: A Multi-model Approach [chapter]

Julien Siebert, Vincent Chevrier, Laurent Ciarletta
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In distributed, dynamic networks and applications, such as Peer-to-Peer (P2P), users' behaviour and quality of service/quality of experiment 1 are known to influence each other.  ...  This paper describes our approach to represent the different models required in such systems and a first implementation in an existing overlay simulator with the first results of experimentations.  ...  Multi-agent for P2P [9] In this article, we use the term QoS to design both quality of service and quality of experiment. We now use node, agent, user or peer as the same.  ...
