Overview of Policy-Oriented and Trusty Multi-Agent System Research
In a multi-agent system, the behavior of agent is difficult to be predicted and controlled reliably because of agent's autonomy, thereby which causes the “trust” crisis that whether the overall goal can be completed or not. In this paper, the multi-agent system credibility of research is introduced from the trust and reputation, and the existing collaboration systems are pointed out that which is lack of controllability and credibility, finally the method of solving credibility of multi-agent system is proposed, namely a two-tier policy-oriented mechanism and a credibility ensuring principle. The executing of system is controlled and guided from looking the collaborators, collaboration established, consultations and negotiations and other sectors, thus the implementation behavior of the system is ensured that which is controllable and trusty.
