A Dynamic Organizational Architecture for Adaptive Problem Solving

Les Gasser, Toru Ishida

There is an essential correspondence between the architecture of a distributed problem-solving system, the structure of the problems it solves, and the environmental conditions under which it solves them. In a dynamic world, such as one populated by multiple agents in a changing environment, this correspondence must be maintained by dynamic adaptation. There are four ways to disrupt or to maintain this correspondence: alter the structure of problems, the environmental conditions, the problem-solving architecture, or the goal-knowledge-action relationships (e.g., task and skill allocations or types of knowledge).
