Hierarchical multi-agent system

Alicja Wakulicz-Deja, Małgorzata Przybyła-Kasperek


The paper presents the process of taking global decisions on the basis of decision rules of local expert systems involving mutually complementary observations of objects which can be mutually contradictory. The author suggests organization of local expert systems into a multi-agent system with a hierarchical structure.
