The aim of my PhD is to study and demonstrate how intelligent software
agents could be used for the provision and management of complex telecommunications services
involving consumers and suppliers of goods (e.g. information, products or services). The main objective of my work
is three fold:
* Study the behaviour of intelligent
self-interested agents in multi-agent communities governed by market like
* Identify the reasoning abilities and strategies that service brokerage agents could use to maximise their own profit while efficiently co-ordinating the provision of goods from suppliers to the consumers
* Experiment and provide empirical evidence of useful and efficient agent behaviour (e.g. agent's strategies) that could be used by the providers of such services (i.e. brokerage agent services) to implement agent based solutions.
