Market-Oriented Programming (Abstract)

Michael P. Wellman

Market-oriented programming is the construction of computational economies, where agents interact through a price system. Markets can provide effective allocation of resources for a variety of distributed environments, and economic analysis a powerful design tool for interaction mechanisms. The spread of electronic commerce puts a premium on market-aware agents, and presents a case for market awareness on the part of agent developers and AI researchers as well.
