Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing is presently attracting huge, immense public realization, spurred via the recognition of file-sharing structures comparable to Napster, Gnutella, Morpheus, Kaza, and several other others. In P2P platforms, a really huge variety of self sustaining computing nodes, the friends, depend on one another for providers. P2P networks are rising as a brand new disbursed computing paradigm due to their capability to harness the computing strength and the garage capability of the hosts composing the community, and since they discover a very open decentralized surroundings the place every body can take part autonomously. even supposing researchers engaged on dispensed computing, multiagent platforms, databases, and networks were utilizing comparable innovations for a very long time, it is just lately that papers influenced by way of the present P2P paradigm have begun showing in prime quality meetings and workshops. particularly, learn on agent structures seems to be so much proper simply because multiagent structures have regularly been considered networks of self sufficient friends on the grounds that their inception. brokers, which might be superimposed at the P2P structure, embrace the outline of activity environments, decision-support functions, social behaviors, belief and acceptance, and interplay protocols between friends. The emphasis on decentralization, autonomy, ease, and velocity of development that provides P2P its merits additionally results in major capability difficulties. such a lot well known between those are coordination – the power of an agent to make judgements by itself activities within the context of actions of alternative brokers, and scalability – the price of the P2P platforms in how good they self-organize so one can scale alongside a number of dimensions, together with complexity, heterogeneity of comrades, robustness, site visitors redistribution, etc.

This publication brings jointly an creation, 3 invited articles, and revised types of the papers awarded on the moment overseas Workshop on brokers and Peer-to-Peer Computing, AP2PC 2003, held in Melbourne, Australia, July 2003.

Example text

If an interaction is satisfying, m and n are both increased by 1 in Formula 4. If it is not satisfying, only n is increased by 1. Two main factors are considered when agents judge an interaction, the degree of their satisfaction with the download speed sds and the degree of their satisfaction with the quality of downloaded file sf q . The overall degree of agents’ satisfaction with an interaction is computed as the following: s = wds ∗ sds + wf q ∗ sf q , where wds + wf q = 1 (5) wds and wf q denote weights, which indicate the importance of download speed and the importance of file quality to a particular agent (depending on the user’s preferences).

NET Passport allows a person to use a single Passport account to traverse all participating services seamlessly. However, both users and service providers may feel uncomfortable leaving their data to a single authority. One such concern could be if their actions will be tracked by the service secretly, or if they will be forced to use another service or buy another product for such service. Moreover, service providers may not wish their customers’ data to be managed by another company (especially when the company may be or may become their competitor).

A high amount of RDs are subjectively biased quality judgements with a high conflict potential. Competitive descriptions, represented by software agents, shall enable such controversies, and social resource descriptions shall make them explicit and available to information agents. Pro-active opinion representation. g. by means of argumentation or conflicting behavior. Complexity and hybridity. Due to the size, the heterogeneity and the openness of the world wide web and public peer-to-peer networks, the agent-supported description of resources is a highly complex task.
