Cooperation without Communication

Michael R. Genesereth, Matthew L. Ginsberg, Jeffrey S. Rosenschein

Intelligent agents must be able to interact even without the benefit of communication. In this paper we examine various constraints on the actions of agents in such situations and discuss the effects of these constraints on their derived utility. In particular, we define and analyze basic rationality; we consider various assumptions about independence; and we demonstrate the advantages of extending the definition of rationality from individual actions to decision procedures.
