Formalizing typicality of objects and context-sensitivity in ontologies
In multiagent systems ontologies are essential because they facilitate tasks like communications and reasoning. In this paper, inspired by studies in cognitive psychology, we pres...

Comparing market and token-based coordination
Many coordination algorithms claim to be general, implying that they can be used to coordinate agents in a variety of domains. However, little work has been done to quantitatively...

Agent interface enhancement: making multiagent graphical models accessible
Multiagent probabilistic reasoning with multiply sectioned Bayesian networks requires interfacing agent subnets (the modeling task) subject to a set of conditions. To specify the ...

Gradient field-based task assignment in an AGV transportation system
Assigning tasks to agents is complex, especially in highly dynamic environments. Typical protocol-based approaches for task assignment such as Contract Net have proven their value...

Convergence analysis for collective vocabulary development
We study how decentralized agents can develop a shared vocabulary without global coordination. Answering this question can help us understand the emergence of many communication s...

Learning against multiple opponents
We address the problem of learning in repeated N-player (as opposed to 2-player) general-sum games. We describe an extension to existing criteria focusing explicitly on such setti...
