Coordination without Communication: Experimental Validation of Focal Point Techniques

  title={Coordination without Communication: Experimental Validation of Focal Point Techniques},
  author={Maier Fenster and Sarit Kraus and Jeffrey S. Rosenschein},
Coordination is a central theme of Distributed Artificial Intelligence. Much work in this field can be seen as a search for mechanisms that allow agents with differing knowledge and goals to coordinate their actions for mutual benefit. Additionally, one cornerstone assumption of the field is that communication is expensive relative to local computation. Thus, coordination techniques that minimize communication are of particular importance. This paper considers how automated agents could use a… CONTINUE READING
