A Novel Approach for Developing Autonomous and Collaborative Agents
In this paper we present a novel approach that customize the BDI model to define a so-called “RBDIA: Rapport-Belief-Desire-Intention-Adaptation” as a generic method to support progress from individual autonomous agent concept towards a collaborative multiple agents. Rapport here refers to the component that connects an agent to its environment, whereas Adaptation module incorporates mechanisms of learning. The contribution of this paper is twofold: first, we develop a novel modeling approach that enable us to combine the internal and social structures of collaborative multigent, and second the proposed methodology is applied to a real-world application for assistance in product development process. We believe that the five proposed tiers for multiagent systems (MAS) development serves for mastering the complexity and the difficulty of setting up effective autonomous collaborative MAS.
