A chat interface for human-agent interaction in MAST
In this paper we introduce a group-messaging interface that allows humans to efficiently interact with a group of agents through a hierarchical and customizable text protocol. Our approach is presented in the context of the MAST mobile agent-based framework for security and administration of large scale computer networks. The MAST framework is primarily human-centric and directly supports human-agent interaction that enables customized agents to notify administrators and react to abnormal environmental conditions. The proposed IRC-like interface was developed and tested in the context of MAST. In this paper we present the group-manager interface in contrast with other agent interfaces currently available in the MAST framework.
