An Artificial Agent Society Is More than a Collection of "Social" Agents

Christian Gerber

This work focuses on scalability of multi-agent-systems (MAS) and on the development of methods to allow systems to configure themselves to any application scale and nature. I address this issue by referring to the assumption that social behavior of artificial agents cannot be achieved by simply designing a social agent architecture alone; social behavior needs social control mechanisms for agent groups or societies. Here, I shall outline such a mechanism, give an application example and put this work into relation to other fields of research.
