> Social Abstractions for Information Agents |
|By Michael N. Huhns and Munindar P. Singh, Intelligent Information Agents Magazine, 1999|
This paper describes some social abstractions for agents that are centered around the notion of social commitments. It shows how they can be part of a practical architecture for information--rich environments, and can be applied to a range of interesting problems. It discusses two examples concerning electronic commerce and virtual enterprises, which were prototyped, albeit in a rather simple manner, using the above abstractions.
> Economic Markets as a Means of Open Mobile-Agent Systems |
|By Jonathan Bredin, David Kotz, and Daniela Rus, Workshop Mobile Agents in the Context of Competition and Cooperation at Autonomous Agents, 5/1/1999|
They examine some restrictions typically present in mobile-agent systems. Specifically, few mobile-agent applications implement communication with agents from other applications or submitted by competing users. This shortfall might be surprising considering that agent technology is often advertised as a unifying design paradigm nurturing both cooperation and competition. They propose that mobile agents buy computational resources from their hosts using a scarce verifiable currency.
