As agents populate Cyberspace in their many guises and roles, they coordinate and interact in different ways, spanning self-interested, as well as collaborative interactions. Agent coordination should be supported by an agent’s internal architecture and agent societal frameworks. We take a micro-economic view of coordination. In this talk we report on our work on adaptive agent architecture and the primitive agent behaviors it supports, agent organizations, contracting protocols among agents and presence of middle agents.
