Title: Dynamically maintaining standards using incentives
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: Standards have had much importance in different fields of researchin order to assure a certain quality of service in bilateral contracts.More specifically, in multi-agent systems performance standards may be usedin order to articulate contracts among partners in environments dealing withuncertainty. However, little effort has been made on how to ensure standardscompliance over time. In this work we put forward a learning-based mechanismthat attempts to maintain performance standards by applying incentivesand/or punishments to agents identified as specialised for certain tasks. Wepresent some empirical results supporting our approach.
