Resilience for Autonomous Agents

Mowbray, Miranda; Williamson, Matthew M.


Keyword(s): autonomous agents; resilience

Abstract: In this paper we show how the resilience approach can give a generic solution to the problems of looping and high-bandwidth output in autonomous agents. A resilient approach to looping is for the agent to delay responding again to a source that has recently triggered a task. A resilient approach to high- bandwidth output is for the agent to delay output when the overall "noise" level in the environment is high. The conditions under which the delays are triggered may be determined by data on past system behaviour. Our generic approach allows agents to limit themselves, without requiring them to perform semantic analyses.
