MAGE: Multi-Agent Game Environment
We study the use of games as a metaphor for building social interaction
in norm-governed multi-agent systems. As part of our research we propose
MAGE (Multi-Agent Game Environment) as a logic-based framework that
represents complex agent interactions as games. MAGE seeks to (a) reuse
existing computational techniques for defining event-based normative sys-
tem and (b) complement these techniques with a coordination component to
support complex interactions.
