Models of Autonomy and Coordination: Integrating Subjective & Objective Approaches in Agent Development Frameworks

Stefano Mariani, Andrea Omicini, Luca Sangiorgi
Objective and subjective approaches to coordination constitute two complementary approaches, both essential in MAS engineering, thus requiring to be suitably integrated. In this paper, we (i) observe that a successful integration depends on the models of autonomy and coordination promoted by agent technologies, (ii) suggest that ignoring the two models may hinder agents’ autonomy, (iii) provide an example of “autonomy-preserving” integration by discussing TuCSoN4Jade.
