JADE AGENT IS INTERMEDIATION SYSTEM (JAIS) FOR KNOWLEDGE EMERGENCE IN COMMUNITY OF PRACTICES - Intelligent Information Systems, Best Practices & Communities of Practice, Cooperation, Communication, Collaboration and Knowledge Sharing

Abstract

This paper presents an intermediation agents system to manage the distributed collaborative design environment like CoPs. The JADE Intermediation System (JAIS) uses community enactment mechanism and agent integration mechanism. The community enactment mechanism is the system kernel and follows the specifications of the CoPs reference model. The system kernel supports two types of agents (human agent and artificial agents) that help to manage the activity into the community, whereas the integration mechanism supports an intermediation agent to interact, coordinate and monitor the activities between agents. JAIS facilitates the team interaction in a collaborative and distributed environment.
