Logic Programming for Multiagent Planning With Negotiation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Multiagent planning deals with the problem of generating plans for multiple agents. It requires formalizing ways for the agents to interact and cooperate, in order to achieve their goals. One way for the agents to interact is through negotiations. Integration of negotiation in multiagent planning has not been extensively investigated and a systematic way for this task has yet to be found. The authors develop a generic model for negotiation in dynamic environments and apply it to generate joint-plans with negotiation for multiple agents. They identify the minimal requirements for such a model and propose a general scheme for one-to-one negotiations. This model of negotiation is instantiated to deal with dynamic knowledge of planning agents.
