TOWARDS MULTIAGENT INTERACTIVE ADAPTION OF INDIVIDUAL MODELS FOR DECISION SUPPORT

Tobias Warden, Thomas Wagner, Hagen Langer, Otthein Herzog

Abstract

Software agents in complex, dynamic environments need to update, adapt, and improve their knowledge models for decision making in order to achieve adequate results. Their individual adaption often relies on machine learning from observational data. However, when data is not available in the required quantity and quality, alternative approaches are required. We propose an interaction-based approach to individual model adaption in multiagent systems, describe agent roles and interaction principles, and discuss how a goal-oriented transfer of knowledge among agents can be integrated into an agent-based knowledge management framework.
