Item description for Organizational Principles for Multi-Agent Architectures (Whitestein Series in Software Agent Technologies and Autonomic Computing) by Chris van Aart...
The general question addressed in this book "How can human organizational principles be used for multi-agent architectures?" is answered by an exploration of the possibilities to design multi-agent systems as artificial organizations.
Key topics of this book:
- a framework for multi-agent system design, based on human organizational notions and principles for distributed intelligent systems design
- "Coordination mechanisms" in the form of "Problem Solving Methods", which can assist "Managers" and agent engineers in reasoning about coordination
- the "Five Capabilities (5C) model" which is a conceptual framework bases on a generalization of typical agent intelligence competences, such as "autonomy", "interaction", "pro-activeness" and "reactiveness"
- a multi-agent architecture capable of (semi)automatic reuse of Problem Solving Methods
- "Ontology-based communication", in which the meaning and intention of message contents in agent communication is specified in "message content ontologies".
