Embodied Organizations: A Unifying Perspective in Programming Agents, Organizations and Environments

Michele Piunti, Olivier Boissier, Jomi F. Hubner, Alessandro Ricci
MAS research pushes the notion of openness related to systems combining heterogeneous computational entities. Typically, those entities answer to di erent purposes and functions and their integration is a crucial issue. Starting from a comprehensive approach in developing agents, organizations and environments, this paper devises an integrated approach and describes a unifying programming model. It introduces the notion of embodied organization, which is described rst focusing on the main entities as separate concerns; and, second, establishing di event interaction styles aimed to seamlessly integrate the various entities in a coherent system. An integration framework, built on top of Jason, CArtAgO and Moise (as programming platforms for agents, environments and organizations resp.) is described as a suitable technology to build embodied organizations in practice.
