Distributed artificial intelligence for group decision support. Integration of problem solving, coordination, and learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Decision support systems (DSS's) for aiding group problem-solving situations have become increasingly important for supporting and coordinating complex organizations. This paper describes a framework for designing, developing, and formalizing group problem-solving systems based on distributed artificial intelligence (DAI). Among the issues, we find the coordination mechanisms and the learning schemes to be of particular importance in supporting group problem solving. Two implementation examples, one on a network of expert systems, one on a multi-agent concurrent design system, are used to illustrate the distributed artificial intelligence approach to group decision support.
