Dialague games and negotiation (bibtex)
by Joris Hulstijn Leendert van der Torre Mehdi Dastani
Abstract:
Multi-agent activities often require negotiation. We propose a way to construct flexible negotiation protocols, based on dialogue games, originally developed for the description of human dialogue. The rules of a dialogue game function as a recipe for joint action. A particular type of a dialogue game, an initiative-response pair, defines minimal well-formed interactions. From such basic exchanges larger dialogues can be constructed coherently. The notion of `uptake' is crucial in this respect. By making an initiative, an agent invites other participants to respond in a particular way. An initiative is often ambiguous. There are different ways the responder can take up the challenge. Thus the interaction is jointly determined by the participants.
