Multi-Agent Decision system – comparision of methods

Alicja Wakulicz-Deja, Małgorzata Przybyła-Kasperek


The paper includes issues related to the process of taking global decisions on the basis of knowledge included in a few local knowledge bases. The knowledge bases contain information regarding the same subject, but are defined on different sets of conditional attributes, which are not necessarily disjoint. Decision system, which operates based on knowledge from a few knowledge bases, take global decisions on the basis on a set of conditions inflicted on the attributes of used knowledge bases. The paper contains a description of multi-agent decision system with a hierarchical structure. The paper also contains a discussion and comparison of the proposed methods of inference enabling global decisions taking in this system.
