When two or more computing agents work on interacting tasks, their activities should be coordinated so that they cooperate coherently. Coherence is particularly problematic in domains where each agent has only a limited view of the overall task, where communication between agents is limited, and where there is no ``controller'' to coordinate the agents. Our approach to coherent cooperation in such domains is developed in the context of a distributed problem-solving network where agents… CONTINUE READING
