MAGUI: A multi-agent graphical user interface

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Man-machine interfaces are a very important part of any computer application. A good human interface must be friendly and effective providing a good interaction between the human operator and the application. Human interfaces for multi-agent systems (MAS) are specially complex because the multiple requirements of this kind of architectures where the human operator is interacting with a multitude of different autonomous agents often characterized by a great dynamics. The presence of more than one user in the system, with similar or with different competencies is another;interesting problem that is quite realistic in many applications of MAS. In this paper, the particular requirements of user interfaces for multi-agent systems are discussed and a multi-agent graphical user interface in the framework of a multi-user multi-agent system is presented.
