Agents with Non-Anthropomorphic Lifecycles

Ladislau Bölöni, Paul DeJung, and Damla Turgut

Most software agent lifecycles are designed in such a way that they mimic the lifecycles of humans (anthropomorphism). This position paper presents a set of operations for software agents which have no immediate biological analogies, such as splitting and merging agents. We argue through a series of scenarios the potential benefits of this approach. We present a method to implement these operations in the Bond agent framework.
