IRON: A Machine for the Automated Synthesis of Normative Systems (Demonstration)

by Javier Morales, Maite López-Sánchez, Juan A. Rodríguez-Aguilar, Michael Wooldridge, Wamberto W. Vasconcelos
Abstract:
The automated synthesis of norms for coordination of multi-agent systems remains an open and complex problem. In this paper we present the Intelligent Robust On-line Norm Synthesis Machine (IRON), a system whose goal is the automated synthesis of norms. IRON is capable of synthesising norms that are at the same time effective (to ensure coordination) and necessary (to avoid over-regulation). IRON has been tested on a simulated traffic scenario to successfully synthesise norms that help cars avoid collisions. IRON is equipped with visualization features that provide support for an intuitive and informed monitoring of the synthesis process.
