Towards Open Agent Systems Through Dynamic Incorporation
Keywords:Multiagent System, Dynamic Incorporation Architecture, Open Agent Systems, PASSI
AbstractThis work tackles the problem of providing a mechanism and infrastructure for allowing a given Multiagent System (MAS) to become open, allowing the incorporation of newly incoming agents to participate within the existing society. For this, a conceptual analysis of the so-called conciliation problem is presented, covering the diverse levels and issues involved in such a process. Our Dynamic Incorporation Architecture is presented, which implements an infrastructure for allowing the participation of external agents into a specific multiagent system by incorporating the appropriate behaviours upon arrival. Our multiagent architecture for dynamic incorporation covers three levels: semantics, communication and interaction and has been applyed in a book-trading e-market scenario.
