The CoABS Control and Brokering group shares an interest in studying the challenges of controlling the identification, allocation, and coordination of capabilities and resources in a networked agent system.
Participating research groups include:
Carnegie-Mellon University (Katia Sycara)
Crystalize (Sankar Virdhagriswaran)
Dartmouth (David Kotz, Daniela Rus)
Stanford/SRI/BritishColumbia (Yoav Shoham, Moises Goldszmidt, Craig Boutilier)
University of Michigan (Ed Durfee)
USC/ISI (Milind Tambe)
Other group participants include:
Michael Huhns (U. South Carolina) co-coordinator
James Lawton (Rome Labs) facilitator
George Cybenko (Dartmouth) coordinator for Scaling TIES (of which Control/Brokering is one)
Frank Born (Rome Labs)
The following are papers suggested by each participating group to get quickly up to speed with that project. One paper (preferably, a short conference paper) per group:
A comparison matrix to begin formulating the landscape covered by the group’s control and brokering technologies is also under development.
