Learning Organizational Roles in a Heterogeneous Multi-agent System

  title={Learning Organizational Roles in a Heterogeneous Multi-agent System},
  author={M. V. Nagendra Prasad and Victor R. Lesser and Susan E. Lander},
Previous work in self-organization for efficient distributed search control has, for the most part, involved simple agents with simple interaction patterns. The work presented in this paper represents one of the few attempts at demonstrating the viability and utility of self-organization in an agent-based system involving complex interactions within the agent set. We present a multi-agent parametric design system called L-TEAM where a set of heterogeneous agents learn their organizational roles… CONTINUE READING
