Bilateral Agent Negotiation With Information-Seeking

By Adil Hussain and Francesca Toni


Abstract. We present a framework for bilateral negotiation between agents in a resource re-allocation setting. We adopt an agent model that, although simple in the interactions permitted, is fully generative and allows for information-seeking to accompany the negotiation. Each agent begins with beliefs as to which resources it has and desires for resources that it would like to have. We define the rules of the dialogues specifying the permissible messages, turn-taking and the order in which messages can be sent. The participants of the dialogues (i.e. the agents) adopt internal policies that enable them to conform to the dialogue rules whilst pursuing their individual desires. We also outline a number of properties of the framework.
