In competitive Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) for IoT, an important task is to form friendships and groups for mutual cooperation.

Abstract

In competitive Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) for IoT, an important task is to form friendships and groups for mutual cooperation. The existing proposals try to improve the profit of individual agent or group but, on the other hand, the most aggressive agents may take advantages from these approaches by means of malicious behaviors. In this work we model a MAS framework of non cooperative games by taking into account i) the reliability of agents relationships through a trust model and ii) the community ability to furnish a good environment to its members through its social capital. Thus, we designed an algorithm that maximizes the social capital. We emphasize two main findings: i) the result is a Nash equilibrium and ii) the agents are awarded only if they behave correctly.
