Agent-Mediated Electronic Commerce. Designing Trading Agents by A. Rogers, E. David, J. Schiff, S. Kraus, N. R. Jennings

By A. Rogers, E. David, J. Schiff, S. Kraus, N. R. Jennings (auth.), Han La Poutré, Norman M. Sadeh, Sverker Janson (eds.)

This ebook constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the seventh overseas Workshop on Agent-Mediated digital trade, AMEC VII 2005, held in Utrecht, Netherlands in July 2005, as a part of AAMAS 2005, and the 3rd Workshop on buying and selling Agent layout and research, TADA 2005, held in Edinburgh, united kingdom in August 2005, through the IJCAI 2005 convention meetings.

The seven revised complete AMEC 2005 papers offered have been rigorously chosen. They handle a mixture of either theoretical and functional matters, taking a look at behavioral and organizational dimensions of agent-mediated digital trade in addition to at complicated computational, details and system-level demanding situations. a longer model of an editorial initially provided at AMEC 2004 has additionally been integrated.

The moment a part of the booklet includes eight revised complete papers of TADA 2005 that target buying and selling agent applied sciences and mechanism layout, together with discussions of agent architectures and decision-making algorithms besides theoretical analyses and empirical reviews of agent ideas in several buying and selling contexts.

Example text

We focus on relatively large-scale settings typical for logistics and strongly competitive environments. This also makes many machine learning approaches intractable due to the large state space and the exponentially growing number of possible future states that can be reached. J. A. La Poutr´e for straightforward expansion to the extensive form of this game. In this setting, the agents are only interested in one item, and not even bundles of items. e. more loads can be transported than are available for auction (| Agents | ∗capacity >| Auctions |).

2 (rampant). The last agent is a myopic bidder. Results give the mean profits as function of the number of epochs learned. 2. Study of Figure 5(b) learns that more aggressive overbidding, as expected from Figure 5(a), is a profitable strategy. Additionally, a better choice in the learning rate (in this case higher ), results in higher aggregate profits as agents more quickly adapt towards the equilibrium strategy. The above two results are of great importance in real-life models or more stochastic domains.

For one extra won load for one of the fruitful regions), we define a local stochastic policy that chooses from a set of three bidding strategies bi where b1 is the strategy of bidding the immediate valuation, b2 is the strategy of overbidding the immediate valuation, and b3 is the strategy of bidding less than the immediate valuation. Strategy b1 acts as if there is no complementary valuation between the current auction and future auctions. An agent using strategy b1 simply bids the immediate valuation of a good as defined in Section 2.
