A SOA-BASED MULTI-AGENT APPLICATION FOR THE CROSSLINGUAL COMMUNICATION PROBLEM

Hércules Antonio do Prado, Aluizio Haendchen Filho, Míriam Sayão, Fénelon do Nascimento Neto

Abstract

We present a multi-agent system (MAS) approach to deal with the communication mediation among communities with disparate levels of language. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is adopted as the basis for designing our proposal that has double purpose: (a) to present an alternative to the crosslingual communication problem and (b) to study an agent organization under the SOA specifications. A case is presented in which the communication among food consumers and experts in food quality/safety is carried out by means of agents’ organizations. We specify two basic sets of elements: application agents, responsible for the logical information, and components that are in charge of persistency, interface, and communication among the software artifacts.
