Cooperative Bidding Mechanisms among Agents in Multiple Online Auctions
Increasingly, there have been growing interest on online auctions for electronic commerce. Currently, more than 150 online auction sites exist on the Internet. Agent-mediated electronic commerce has recently commanded much attention. Agents can act autonomously and cooperatively in a network environment on behalf of their users. It is hard for users to attend, monitor, and bid at the multiple auctions sites simultaneously. Therefore, we have proposed BiddingBot (Fig.1), a system which can support bidding to several auction sites simultaneously .
