Modèle dialectique pour la synthèse de plans

Abstract : This PhD. thesis is devoted to the study of multi-agent planning. The issues we shall be concerned with is to understand the mechanisms which allow a group of autonomous agents to build collaboratively a global shared plan. Contrary to classical approaches in which planning is only a tool among many to specify agents' activities and coordination a subsuming component needed in order to synchronized them, our contribution relies on the conception of a completely distributed planning model: agents reason together on their own activities to achieve a shared goal, taking into account their heterogeneous skills and their partial knowledge of the world. We argue that multiagent planning process can be considered as collective and defeasible reasoning where agents exchange conjectures, i.e., formulate plan steps based on hypothetical states of the world and refutations, i.e., objections relative to plan achievement. The interaction between agents is a joint dialectical investigation process in which agents propose their skill to prove assumptions, refute unachievable conjecture, repair when it is possible previously refuted conjectures and finally build step by step a solution plan.
