Information Fields in Organization Modeling using an EDA Multi-Agent Architecture

Joaquim Filipe

The EDA model (Epistemic-Deontic-Axiological) is an agent model based on the social psychology theoretical classification of norms and corresponding attitudes: Ontological, Epistemic, Deontic and Axiological. EDA agents are situated in normative information fields, and are described in terms of the basic attitudes aforementioned. Information fields are used as the basis for coordinating an organization, which is seen here as a collective agent composed of other individual and/or collective agents and/or roles, that encompasses multiple embedded information fields. The paper discusses coordination and the representation of social structures based on using the EDA agent model combined with the notion of information field.
