Self-Adaptation Using Multiagent Systems
January/February 2010 (vol. 27 no. 1)
pp. 86-91
Danny Weyns, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven

Modern distributed software systems involve dynamic operating conditions that pose engineering challenges to traditional offline design. Multiagent systems engineering can solve some of these problems by offering self-adaptive features such as loose coupling, context sensitivity, and robustness to failure. The authors describe the tradeoffs in multiagent systems and lessons learned in their implementation but propose them as a critical advantage as distributed systems continue to evolve.
