Using social media and only the targets' mug shots, a team competing in the US State Department-sponsored Tag Challenge located three of five targeted people in five cities in the US and Europe in less than 12 hours.
 
The Dynamics of Two Cognitive Heuristics for Coordination on Networks
Found in: Social Computing / IEEE International Conference on Privacy, Security, Risk and Trust, 2010 IEEE International Conference on
By Iyad Rahwan, Fatemeh Jahedpari, Sherief Abdallah
Issue Date:August 2010
pp. 473-479
This paper is about how groups solve global coordination problems such as the distributed graph coloring problem. We focused on scenarios in which agents are not able to communicate explicitly, but can rely on observing the momentary choices of their immed...
 
A Study of an Approach to the Collective Iterative Task Allocation Problem
Found in: Intelligent Agent Technology, IEEE / WIC / ACM International Conference on
By Christian Guttmann, Iyad Rahwan, Michael Georgeff
Issue Date:November 2007
pp. 363-369
A major challenge in the field of Multi-Agent Systems is to enable autonomous agents to allocate tasks efficiently. This paper extends previous work on an approach to the collective iterative task allocation problem where a group of agents endeavours to ma...
 
Guest Editors' Introduction: Argumentation Technology
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Iyad Rahwan, Peter McBurney
Issue Date:November 2007
pp. 21-23
This introduction to the special issue on argumentation technology discusses argumentation's role in modern computing. It also identifies the challenges that the community must meet before it can achieve widespread deployment of argumentation technologies.
 
An empirical study of interest-based negotiation
Found in: Proceedings of the ninth international conference on Electronic commerce (ICEC '07)
By Frank Dignum, Iyad Rahwan, Liz Sonenberg, Philippe Pasquier, Ramon Hollands
Issue Date:August 2007
pp. 339-348
While argumentation-based negotiation has been accepted as a promising alternative to game-theoretic or heuristic based negotiation, no evidence has been provided to confirm this theoretical advantage. We propose a model of bilateral negotiation extending ...
     
Managing social influences through argumentation-based negotiation
Found in: Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (AAMAS '06)
By Iyad Rahwan, Nicholas R. Jennings, Nishan C. Karunatillake, Sarvapali D. Ramchurn
Issue Date:May 2006
pp. 426-428
Social influences play an important part in the actions that an individual agent may perform within a multi-agent society. However, the incomplete knowledge and the diverse and conflicting influences present within such societies, may stop an agent from ab...
     
An argumentation based approach for practical reasoning
Found in: Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (AAMAS '06)
By Iyad Rahwan, Leila Amgoud
Issue Date:May 2006
pp. 347-354
We build on recent work on argumentation frameworks for generating desires and plans. We provide a rich instantiation of Dung's abstract argumentation framework for (i) generating consistent desires; and (ii) generating consistent plans for achieving these...
     
Argument-based negotiation in a social context
Found in: Proceedings of the fourth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems (AAMAS '05)
By Iyad Rahwan, Nicholas R. Jennings, Nishan C. Karunatillake, Timothy J. Norman
Issue Date:July 2005
pp. 1331-1332
Autonomous agents usually operate as a multi-agent community performing actions within a shared social context to achieve their individual and collective objectives. In such a social context, their actions are influenced via two broad forms of motivations....
