Abstract

A Critical Investigation of Agent Interaction Protocols in Multiagent Systems

Rashmi Singh, Aarti Singh, Saurabh Mukherjee

Although, multiagent systems are operative from more than three decades now, very few agent interaction protocols meeting the communication specific requirements have been designed till date. Researchers have strongly been demanding for a protocol which is able to formalize the semantics for flexible and understandable communication i.e. to understand the meaning of rules of communication and interaction. Since, agents active in a multi-agent system are socio-technical entities that interact with its peers for every day computing; therefore, a protocol that meets the above concerns is highly desired. The current investigation of existing protocols for agent interaction in multiagent systems is critical as it investigate both positive and negative aspects of available protocols; thus laying the foundation for a novel protocol.
