The Art of Agent-Oriented Modeling

MIT Press

Today, when computing is pervasive and deployed over a range of devices
by a multiplicity of users, we need to develop computer software to interact with
both the ever-increasing complexity of the technical world and the growing fluidity
of social organizations. The Art of Agent-Oriented Modeling presents a new
conceptual model for developing software systems that are open, intelligent, and
adaptive. It describes an approach for modeling complex systems that consist of
people, devices, and software agents in a changing environment (sometimes known as
distributed sociotechnical systems). The authors take an agent-oriented view, as
opposed to the more common object-oriented approach. Thinking in terms of agents
(which they define as the human and man-made components of a system), they argue,
can change the way people think of software and the tasks it can perform. The book
offers an integrated and coherent set of concepts and models, presenting the models
at three levels of abstraction corresponding to a motivation layer (where the
purpose, goals, and requirements of the system are described), a design layer, and
an implementation layer. It compares platforms by implementing the same models in
four different languages; compares methodologies by using a common example; includes
extensive case studies; and offers exercises suitable for either class use or
independent study.
