Flexible Method for a Distance Measure Between Communicative Agents’ Stored Perceptions
In this paper a flexible method for a distance measure between communicative agents’ stored perceptions is proposed. It is assumed that each agent observes the states of external objects that are remembers them in a private temporal database in the form of base profiles. Distance measure is applied by the agent in the algorithm for the messages generation or during integration of other agents’ opinions collected during communication activities in order to create objective picture of the current state’s of objects. Proposed distance measure between base profiles is based on a computing of the costs of transformation one base profile into other. The objects’ movements hierarchy is introduced and mathematically explained using expected value and random variable.
