In this paper we introduce organizations and roles in Shoham and Tennenholtz’ artificial social systems, using a normative system. We model how real agents determine the behavior of organizations by playing roles in the organization, and how the organization controls the behavior of agents playing a role in it. We consider the design of an organization in terms of roles and the assignment of agents to roles, and the evolution of organizations. We do not present a complete formalization of the computational problems, but we illustrate our approach by examples. [less ▲]

In this paper we are interested in non-monotonic extensions of Bengt Hansson’s standard dyadic deontic logic 3, known as DSDL3. We study specificity principles for DSDL3 with both controllable and uncontrollable propositions. We introduce an algorithm for minimal specificity which not only covers obligations but also permissions, and we discuss the distinction between weak and strong permissions. Moreover, we introduce ways to combine algorithms for minimal and maximal specificity for DSDL3 with controllable and uncontrollable propositions, based on ‘optimistic’ and ‘pessimistic’ reasoning respectively.

In this paper we consider the extension of non-monotonic preference logic with the distinction between controllable(or endogenous) and uncontrollable(or exogenous)variables, which can be used for example in agent decision making and deliberation. We assume that the agent is optimistic about its owncontrollables and pessimistic about its uncontrollables, and we study ways to merge these two distinct dimensions.We also consider complex preferences, such as optimistic preferences conditional on an uncontrollable, or optimistic preferences conditional on a pessimistic preference.

This paper is about control mechanisms for virtual organizations. As a case study, we discuss the Renewables Obligation (RO), a control mechanism that was introduced in the United Kingdom to stimulate the production of renewable energy. We apply a conceptual model based on normative multiagent systems (NMAS). We propose to model both the participants and the normative system as autonomous agents, having beliefs and goals. Norms, which can be internalized by the agents as obligations, are translated into conditional beliefs and goals of the normative system, which concern both detection and sanctioning measures. We show that the model can handle both the regulative and the evidential aspects of the case. [less ▲]
