Abstract / Description of output
This paper presents communication systems (CS) as the first available unified model of socially intelligent systems defined in terms of communication structures. It combines the empirical analysis of communication in a social system with logical processing of social information to provide a general framework for computational components that exploit communication processes in multiagent systems. The two main contributions offered by this paper are as follows: First, a formal model of CS that is based on an improved version of expectation networks and their processing is presented. This formal model is based on a novel approach to the semantics of agent communication languages which contrasts with traditional approaches. Second, a number of CS-based applications are described which illustrate the enormous potential and impact of a CS-based perspective of socially intelligent systems.
