Cloning, resource exchange and relation adaptation: a self-organising multi-agent framework

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • In this paper, a self-organising multi-agent framework is proposed.

    Different from current related approaches which concerned

    only a single principle of self-organisation, this framework

    synthesises the three principles of self-organisation,

    i.e., agent cloning/spawning, resource exchange and relation

    adaptation. In this framework, an agent can autonomously

    generate new agents when it is overloaded, exchange resources

    with other agents if necessary, and adapt relations

    with other agents to achieve a better network structure. In

    this way, agents in this framework can adapt to dynamic

    environments.
