Reasoning and Representing Preferences of Multiple Agents"

Toby Walsh, University College Cork (joint work with Francesca Rossi and Brent Venable)

In many situations, we need to represent and reason about the simultaneous preferences of several agents (for example, in scheduling a meeting or planning a dinner). This introduces a number of problems. For example we must decide how to satisfying their possibly conflicting demands. We therefore propose a framework for representing and reasoning with the preferences of multiple agents. This is an extension of the CP nets framework for representing qualitative and conditional preferences. The talk will describe this work in progress.
