MULTI-AGENT NEGOTIATION MODEL BASED-ON ARGUMENTATION IN THE CONTEXT OF E-COMMERCE

Guorui Jiang, Yangwei Xu, Ying Liu

Abstract

In the e-commerce transactions, there are lots of commodities with the same name, but anyone of these commodities have certain attributes which differ itself from others. During the traditional process of multi-agent negotiation, only one commodity can be selected as the negotiation object from these commodities with same name, if buyer agent want to find an appropriate commodity, the flexibility and efficiency of multi-agent negotiation would be low. This paper studies the multi-agent negotiation model by argumentation for a group of commodities. It firstly defines all kinds of negotiation elements, then establishes a negotiation model based-on argumentation and describes the negotiation agreements and strategies, and finally an example would be presented for testifying the effects of this model.
