Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The goals of this chapter are to identify the challenges involved in selfadaptation (including learning and knowledge sharing) of multiple self-aware systems (or system collectives). We shall discuss the techniques available for dealing with the challenges identified (e.g., algorithms for conflict resolution, collective learning, and negotiation protocols), and which are appropriate given assumptions regarding the collective system architecture.We refer to notions of knowledge, learning, and adaptation; various self-awareness levels; and reference scenarios introduced in Chap. 4.
