Decision Making Model for Intelligent Agent in Automated Negotiation

Decision Making Model for Intelligent Agent in Automated Negotiation

Abstract—Traditional research in automated negotiation is focused on negotiation protocol and strategy, but they cannot satisfy all the requirements for realizing a practical automated negotiation system. This paper focuses on agent’s independent decision-making process; formally defines automated negotiation’s abstract concept model, which is made up of three sub-concept models, they are negotiation environment, negotiation process and negotiating agent; designs negotiating agent’s architecture based on the concept model, which can support both goal-directed reasoning and reactive response; proposes an algorithm for running the decision making model. Finally, for illustration, the model is applied to an exemplified negotiation process for aircraft purchasing.

Index Terms—Automated negotiation, agent, multi-agent system, belief-desire-intention model
