Multiagent Systems in Expression Analysis
This paper presents a multiagent system for decision support in the diagnosis of leukemia patients. The core of the system is a type of agent that integrates a novel strategy based on a case-based reasoning mechanism to classify leukemia patients. This agent is a variation of the CBP agents and proposes a new model of reasoning agent, where the complex processes are modeled as external services. The agents act as coordinators of Web services that implement the four stages of the case-based reasoning cycle. The multiagent system has been implemented in a real scenario, and the classification strategy includes a novel ESOINN neuronal network and statistics methods to analyze the patient’s data. The results obtained are presented within this paper and demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed agent model, as well as the appropriateness of using multiagent systems to resolve medical problems in a distributed way.
