INTEGRATING A STANDARD COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL INTO AN E-COMMERCE ENVIRONMENT BASED ON INTELLIGENT AGENTS

Abstract

Communication among intelligent agents which take part in negotiation protocols is not frequently considered as an important topic in the negotiation stage. These mechanisms are often designed for specific problems, without taking into account the interoperability among agents involved. In this paper, we suggest a standard communication protocol to ensure the interoperability among intelligent agents based on fuzzy logic in an E- Commerce environment. Moreover, this environment is integrated into a FIPA-compliant multi-agent system, formalizing the communication among agents at message and payload levels. The standard messages and the protocols used are described in depth, together with a detailed example.
