A CRISIS MANAGEMENT APPROACH TO MISSION SURVIVABILITY IN COMPUTATIONAL MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS

Aleksander Byrski, Marek Kisiel-Dorohinicki, Marco Carvalho

Abstract


In this paper we present a biologically-inspired approach for mission survivability (consideredas the capability of fulfilling a task such as computation) that allows the system to be aware ofthe possible threats or crises that may arise. This approach uses the notion of resources usedby living organisms to control their populations.We present the concept of energetic selectionin agent-based evolutionary systems as well as the means to manipulate the configuration ofthe computation according to the crises or user’s specific demands.
