Abstract [en]

In this paper, we present an approach to automatically create a hierarchy of agents. The hierarchy clusters similar agents and, thereby, optimizes locality. The clustering improves task efficiency in the multi-agent system. Moreover, clustering reduces communication costs between closely connected agents and speeds up searching for data in networks and graphs. In addition, the approach supports task handling by the agents and reasoning at different levels in hierarchy by dividing the overall task among the agents in the hierarchy. The benefit of dividing tasks into small separate pieces is that the agents can work with the task independently using parallel computation. The results from the computation can be efficiently reassembled by the hierarchy of agents.
