Towards cooperative argumentation for MAS: An actor-based approach

by Giuseppe Pisano, Roberta Calegari, and Andrea Omicini


We discuss the problem of cooperative argumentation in multi-agent systems, focusing on the computational model. An actor-based model is proposed as a first step towards cooperative argumentation in multi-agent systems to tackle distribution issues—illustrating a preliminary fully-distributed version of the argumentation process completely based on message passing.
