Abstract

Agent-oriented computing is a technique for generating an agent that operates autonomously according to behavioral knowledge. Moreover, an agent can have a characteristic called “learning” skill. More efficient operation of an agent can be expected by support an agent designer who designs and develops an agent equipped with “learning” skill. The authors propose a design support mechanism of a learning agent on a repository-based agent framework called the DASH framework. The proposed mechanism enables an agent designer to design and implement the learning agent without great expertise, thereby reducing the designer’s burden. Herein, they explain the DASH framework, Q-Learning, and the proposed design support mechanism. Moreover, the authors demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method using some experiments.
