Distributed, dynamic and decentralized problems

Distributed, dynamic and decentralized problems occur when heterogeneous partners need to collaborate...

There are classes of problems that are inherently of a distributed, dynamic and decentralized nature as those which occur when heterogeneous partners need to collaborate over a computer network. Such a class comprises Electronic Institution problems related to services like negotiation mediation, ontology mapping, contract drafting, contract monitoring and enforcement, and evaluation of reputation indices for Virtual Enterprises life-cycle automatic assistance. These problems are better addressed through Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS). However improvements are required both on the theoretical and practical aspects, in order to achieve better interoperability, decision making, agents- and team- coordination. Approaches to this include the use of Adaptation, joint Learning capabilities, Emotion-like architectures for cognitive agents, agent-based simulation platforms. Direct application areas are Electronic Institutions problems and Intelligent Text Mining.
