Cross-Community Interoperation Between the EMERALD and Rule Responder Multi-Agent Systems

The vision of the Semantic Web allows users to delegate complex actions to intelligent agents, which will act on behalf of their users in a variety of real-life applications. This paper focuses on two Semantic Web enabled multi-agent systems, EMERALD and Rule Responder, which can be employed to assist communities of users based on Semantic Web and multi-agent standards such as RDF, OWL, RuleML, and FIPA. The present work demonstrates how these multi-agent systems can interoperate to automate collaboration across communities using a declarative, knowledge-based approach. In addition, a multi-step interaction scenario among agents is presented, demonstrating the usefulness of interoperating between the above systems, exemplifying a general approach to cross-community collaboration.
