RETSINA - Reusable Environment for Task Structured Intelligent Network Agents

The RETSINA framework is being used to develop distributed collections of intelligent software agents that cooperate asynchronously to perform goal-directed information retrieval and information integration in support of performing a variety of decision making tasks. A collection of RETSINA agents form an open society of reusable agents that self organize and cooperate in response to task requirements. In particular, we focus on three crucial characteristics of the overall framework that differentiate our work from others: This page will discuss motivation, the overall system organization, and the architectural framework for individual agents. We will draw examples from our work on Intelligent Agents in the domains of Organizational Decision Making (the PLEIADES system), and Financial Portfolio Management (the WARREN system).
