The Fifth International Workshop on Emergent Intelligence on Networked Agents (WEIN 2010)

Organizing agents or organized agents?

Frank Dignum

One can organize agents in MAS by using a particular criterium to optimize, such as communication efficiency. If all agents are implicitly or explicitly trying to optimize such a criterium they will adapt theselves whenever the environment changes. This is different from using an agent organization that tries to balance several criteria such as efficiency, robustness and flexibility. Such an organization is meant to provide stability over longer periods despite environmental dynamics. The presentation will cover issues such as when an organization should change, who decides to change it and also how it should be changed.
