Policy Management for Virtual Communities of Agents (bibtex)
by Guido Boella, Leendert W. N. van der Torre
Abstract:
In this paper we study the rational balance between local and global policies in virtual communities of agents. To study this problem we use a logical framework for modelling obligations and permissions in multiagent systems. In particular, the logical framework allows agents to trade off the decision of respecting a norm against the consequences of not respecting it: the possibility that they are considered violators and thus sanctioned. To formalize decision making we use a qualitative game theory. n-player games are based on recursive modelling: the bearer of a norm models the behavior of local normative authorities as agents who are in turn subject to other norms and thus model global normative agents.
