Title: Cooperation in a multi-agent community
Issue Date: 1993
Abstract: This paper describes a framework for cooperation suitable for being exploited in asociety of cooperative distributed agents. We briefly present a tool UPShell - Universityof Porto Shell, which may be used to generate specific Intelligent Systems, although itsmain purpose is to build up a community of coarse-grain, semi-autonomous agents outeither of those generated Intelligent Systems or of already pre-existent Knowledge BasedSystems. After selecting the agents and the machines where each agent is going to run,UPShell sets up an architecture enabling agents to communicate and cooperate. Insideeach agent, a blackboard-based architecture supports a flexible control and naturalintegration of different modules responsible for internal activity (problem solving) as wellas external activity (cooperation and communication).
