Changing Roles: Dynamic Role Assignment

By: James Odell, H. Van Dyke Parunak, Sven Brueckner, John Sauter

Abstract

An important characteristic of real-world agent systems is that the roles played by an agent may change over time. These changes can be of several different kinds. The authors describe an illustrative application where role changes are important, analyze and classify the various kinds of role changes over time that may occur, and show how this analysis is useful in developing a more formal description of the application.
