Abstract:

This research project used a combination of theory and experimentation to advance both the design methods and delivered functionality of Multi-Agent Systems in the context of military-relevant problem domains. The experiments conducted tested new theories about how systems of agents acting as distributed decision-makers should 1 reorganize by allocating decision-making control to maximize system performance, 2 assess the trustworthiness of information by determining the level of information uncertainty and reliability of information source, and 3 coordinate by exchanging their preferences for actions under varying organizations and situations.
