Current approaches to multi-agent interaction involve specifying protocols as sets of possible interactions, and hard-coding decision mechanisms into agent programs in order to decide which path an interaction will take. This leads to several problems, three of which are particularly notable: hard-coding the decisions about interaction within an agent strongly couples the agent and the protocols it uses, which means a change to a protocol involves a changes in any agent that uses such a… CONTINUE READING
