Team Oriented Programming and Proxy Agents The Next Generation Paul Scerri David V Pynadath Nathan Schurr Alessandro Farinelli Sudeep Gandhe and Milind Tambe Computer Science Department University of Southern California scerri pynadath schurr farinelli gandhe tambe usc edu April 16 2003 Abstract to starting up team activities although limited reallocation can occur at run time Unfortunately in large scale teams off line allocation of agents to roles by hand is difficult Second a high level of dynamism in the environment requires that agents role allocation and reallocation strategy must often be integrated into one unified fluid algorithm rather than as two separate phases allocation vs reallocation as seen in existing architectures Furthermore agents must consider role reallocation not only under catastrophic failures as was done previously but must be willing to give up current roles to take up new precious opportunities Third as we build increasingly heterogeneous teams and particularly include humans in the loop we must enable the proxies to tap into human expertise in coordination in key situations Previous research on teamwork has allowed agents and humans to work together but the human participation was limited to domain level activities In this work we propose to go beyond to enable humans to provide their valuable expertise in team coordination activities as well Coordination between large teams of highly heterogeneous entities will change the way complex goals are pursued in real world environments One approach to achieving the required coordination in such teams is to give each team member a proxy that assumes routine coordination activities on behalf of its team member Despite that approach s success as we attempt to apply this first generation of proxy architecture to larger teams in more challenging environments some limitations become clear In this paper we present initial efforts on the next generation of Team Oriented Programming TOP and proxy
