Machine Learning and
A coalition is a set of agents that agree to cooperate in order
to achieve a common objective. The incentives for creating/joining a
coalition can be to
(i) reduce cost or increase profit
(ii) reduce risk (or allow someone else to assume risk), or
(iii) increase in market size or share.
Protocols for coalition formation are the focus of this project as
well as factors that affect the stability of a coalition. Other
related issues such as for instance minimisation of risk and issues
related to trust at the various levels are also explored.
