MAS Infrastructure Definitions, Needs, and Prospects [chapter]

Les Gasser
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper attempts to articulate the general role of infrastructure for multi-agent systems (MAS), and why infrastructure is a particularly critical issue if we are to increase the visibility and impact of multi-agent systems as a universal technology and solution. Second, it presents my current thinking on the socio-technical content of the needed infrastructure in four different corners of the multi-agent systems world: science, education, application, and use.
