Substantive and procedural norms in normative multiagent systems

Guido Boella, Leendert van der Torre
2008 Journal of Applied Logic  
Procedural norms have first been discussed in law, where they address legal practitioners such as legislators, lawyers and policemen, but they are discussed now too in normative multiagent systems to motivate  ...  In this paper we formalize procedural, regulative and constitutive norms using input/output logic enriched with an agent ontology and an abstraction hierarchy.  ...  Substantive norms are discussed not only in law, but also in normative multiagent systems like electronic institutions.  ...

Dynamic assignment of roles, rights and responsibilities in normative multi-agent systems

F. Derakhshan, T. Bench-Capon, P. McBurney
2011 Journal of Logic and Computation  
We achieve this by defining rights, responsibilities and sanctions in a manner which allows for their run-time assignment and re-assignment to agents in a normative multiagent system.  ...  Open multiagent systems typically require the participating agents to comply with system-level rules, or norms, and may punish non-compliance.  ...  of Science, Research and Technology of the Islamic Republic of Iran.  ...

Understanding Behaviour Patterns of Multi-agents in Digital Business Ecosystems: An Organisational Semiotics Inspired Framework [chapter]

Prince Kwame Senyo, Kecheng Liu, John Effah
2018 Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing  
To aid appropriate apportionment of work and design of information systems, it is essential to understand behaviour of both human and digital agents.  ...  Thus, value creation in digital business ecosystems is jointly undertaken by multiple human and digital agents.  ...  hence we call for validation of our framework in other ecosystems such as mobile, ecommerce, and software DBEs.  ...

Institutions with a hierarchy of authorities in distributed dynamic environments

Guido Boella, Leendert van der Torre
2007 Artificial Intelligence and Law  
A single global authority is not sufficient to regulate heterogenous agents in multiagent systems based on distributed architectures, due to idiosyncratic local situations and to the need to regulate new  ...  and allow higher level authorities to limit the power of lower level authorities to change the normative system.  ...  In Sect. 2, we discuss normative multiagent systems and in Sect. 3 we summarize legal theory on permission.  ...

Exception handling in agent systems

Mark Klein, Chrysanthos Dellarocas
1999 Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents - AGENTS '99  
In this paper we will review the limitations of current "agent-local" approaches to exception handling in agent systems, and propose an alternative approach based on a shared exception handling service  ...  Agents need only implement their normative behavior plus a minimal set of interfaces.  ...  The query language we use builds upon that developed in earlier systems [16, 23] extending it to include queries concerning normative agent behavior models.  ...

Legal Linked Data Ecosystems and the Rule of Law [chapter]

Marta Poblet, Pompeu Casanovas, Víctor Rodríguez-Doncel
2019 SpringerBriefs in Law  
The chapter suggests in the end a reusable multi-levelled meta-model and four notions of legal validity: positive, composite, formal, and ecological.  ...  It shows how the protections of the substantive rule of law can be embedded into the semantic languages of the web of data and reflects on the conditions that make possible their enactment and implementation  ...  It can be defined "as the intersection of normative systems and multiagent systems (MAS)" (Boella et al. 2007 ). 33 MAS are computer systems composed of multiple interacting intelligent agents, creating  ...
