ABS4GD: A Multi-agent System that Simulates Group Decision Processes Considering Emotional and Argumentative Aspects

Goreti Marreiros, Ricardo Santos, Carlos Ramos, Jose Neves and Jose Bulas-Cruz

Emotion although being an important factor in our every day life it is many times forgotten in the development of systems to be used by persons. In this work we present an architecture for a ubiquitous group decision support system able to support persons in group decision processes. The system considers the emotional factors of the intervenient participants, as well as the argumentation between them. Particular attention will be taken to one of components of this system: the multi-agent simulator, modeling the human participants, considering emotional characteristics, and allowing the exchanges of hypothetic arguments among the participants.
