Agent Protocols for Peer-to-Peer Architectures

Chris Walton

Peer-to-peer architectures have recently gained much popularity for their ability to handle large data-sets and large numbers of clients in a robust and scalable way.   In this talk I will discuss how agents can interact with these P2P architectures so that they can obtain the benefits when constructing large multi-agent systems.  My approach uses lightweight executable interaction protocols to enable agents to interact with multiple P2P networks in a flexible manner.
