A MODEL MULTI-AGENTS FOR SHARING AND EXCHANGING KNOWLEDGE IN COMMUNITY OF PRACTICES

Kenfack Clauvice

Abstract

Abstraction (AOA). abstract:This paper attempts to show, how CoPs evolve knowledge transfer. We are focusing on the elaboration of a frame to analyse and underlie the logics of the modalities of functioning of CoPs. We qualify this concept as an abstract regrouping knowledge creation. By adopting a processual perspective, we will try to present the mechanisms of sharing knowledge within a CoPs. CoPs is a collection of agents (human beings) who have rather strong common points such as, their level of social capacity, their competences, and the cognitive capacities. The development of the exchanges is based on abstract boundaries; the couple knowledge/community implies that an exchange of information takes place through mechanisms of co-operation, negotiation and through a specific communication language of community members. However, the legitimacy of exchanged knowledge is recognized only with interpersonal confidence association that creates for itself progressively interactions. Besides, these exchanges take place only through rules and standards established by all the members. After having pointed out the theoretical bases of CoPs and the sharing knowledge mechanisms, we will present an approach of simulation using the paradigm of the multiagents systems, sharing knowledge’s within the CoPs.
