Using Interaction Laws to Implement Dependability Explicit Computing in Open Multi-Agent Systems

Rodrigo PaesCarlos LucenaGustavo Carvalho

In this paper we propose to incorporate the Dependability Explicit Computing (DepEx) ideas into a law-governed approach in order to build dependable open multi-agent systems. We show that the law specification can explicitly incorporate dependability concerns, collect data and publish them in a metadata registry. This data can be used to realize DepEx and, for example, it can Help to guide design and runtime decisions. The advantages of using a law-approach are (i) the explicit specification of the dependability concerns; (ii) the automatic collection of the dependability metadata reusing the mediators' infrastructure presenting in law-governed approaches; and (iii) the ability to specify reactions to undesirable situations, thus preventing service failures.
