An E-Market Framework to Determine the Strength of Business Relationships between Intelligent Agents
When an agent enters in an e-Market for the firsttime, it has no historical information that canbe used to determine the strength of businessrelationship with participant agent, and musttherefore rely on the reporting of other agents toprepare for negotiation with that agents. Beliefsof individual agents change through interactionwith participant agents and are reflected intheir on-going relationships. An understandingof business relationships is fundamental to understanding trade between both human agentsin traditional markets and software agents inelectronic markets. Two parties in the marketestablish agreement for mutual beneficial dealsor contracts and therefore execute that deal orcontract. Contextual information e.g., constraints,preferences, deadlines etc., during execution ofthe contract are unknown to each of the partieswhile they established the contract. Deviationsbetween signed contract and executed contractare observed and used to measure the strengthof relationship between two parties. We havepresented an E-Market framework to describe howInstitution Agent can assist for mining Outcome ofContract Execution by observing ArgumentationDialogues to determine how business relationshipdevelops and evolves. In this work, developmentof an argumentation system is going on whereInstitution Agent observes the argumentationdialogue between buyer and seller agents. Theresults of observation are used to determinethe strength of business relationship for futureinteractions between buyer agent and seller agent.
